Annual Trouble In Toyland Report

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — During this holiday shopping season, you may want to take the time to read labels and carefully consider toys you buy for the children in your life. The U.S. Public Interest Research Group has released its Trouble in Toyland report, and while concerns over small parts and lead place toys on the list, technology also provides a new concern. The doll My Friend Cayla is on the list; it has Bluetooth capability that N.C. PIRG’s Kristen Carver says is cause for concern. The FBI recently issued a warning against toys that include unsecured technology, and the doll is banned in Germany. The company has insisted in public statements the doll is safe. PIRG also found high amounts of lead in fidget spinners sold at Target; the retailer has since removed those from its shelves.
