W.A.T.C.H: against Dangerous Toys

When we buy a toy, we rarely ask ourselves if it is safe for our children. But we do wrong.

W.A.T.C.H. (World Against Toys Causing Harm), It is an organization established by an American attorney, worried about the dangers of some toys for the children.

Its founder, Edward M. Swartz says that each toy box can contain a deadly trap. His experience of over 30 years as a lawyer in the toy industry has made him aware of the real risk of some products.

Swartz gives us some caveats to keep in mind before you buy:

  • Beware of toys purchased online, without instructions or recommendations of age.
  • Beware of toys with battery. It may leak, overheat or explode.
  • Beware of toys with skin or hair. They could swallow or suck the fibers.
  • Beware of toys with small parts added, ties or strips.
  • Beware of toys with projectiles that can cause eye damage.
  • Beware of toys with sharp points or accessories with tip.
  • Beware of toys made with flammable material.
  • Beware of toys with toxic components or surfaces.
    The Foundation W.A.T.C.H, whose acronym means “Watch” or “control” in English, was created non-profit and has developed a program called Toys, You and the Real World, where attempts to educate youth, parents and educators about the importance of a more secure world.

Edward M. Swartz is the author of two books on the subject: Toys That Don´t Care and Toys That Kills and since 1973 it manufactures annually a list of the 10 Worst Toys of the year. Thank you to include some toys on their blacklist, got manufacturers to replace potentially dangerous components. Without a doubt, the jugueteros esmerarán is not part of the list of the next year.

Although it is a simple scrape or the slightest damage, is too much. The first and last of the toys function must be educating and entertaining our children, without prejudice to any.
