2013 dangerous toys list released

NEW YORK (PIX11) -  We’re in the middle of the holiday shopping season so now is as good a time as any to take a look at toys that may pose a danger to children.

A research group, NYPIRG,  put out a list in their annual report called “Treacherous Toys.” These are toys that might post choking hazards, have lead in the paint and phthalates, which are chemicals that can cause cancer.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is making a push to get phthalates outlawed.

Some of the toys on the list include “Explore & Learn Helicopter,” “The Avengers Gamma Green Smash Fists,” and “Bongo Ball.”
