From choking hazards, chemical injuries, to the potential for shooting your eye out, these toys come with extra warnings for parents.
Boston-based World Against Toys Causing Harm Inc. (WATCH) just released their annual 10 Worst Toys of 2020 list. If you're not careful, pretty much any toy could cause an injury. I have a four-year-old daughter and an eight-year-old son, and they could make almost any toy dangerous, especially when he upsets his little sister. She'll get pretty mean if he doesn't act right.
The WATCH findings on this year's list just pose a bit more risk than other toys available this year.

Star Wars Mandalorian Darksaber (potential for blunt force and face injuries)
My Sweet Love Lots of Love Babies Minis (potential choking hazard)
Boom City Racers (potential for eye and face injuries)
Boomerang Interactive Stunt UFO (potential for propeller-related injury)
Sci-Fi Slime (potential for chemical-related injuries)
