CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

They're the ten most dangerous toys for this Christmas, according to World Against Toys Causing Harm, or W.A.T.C.H.  and the problems with these items range from allergens and choking hazards, to toys that can cause eye, face, or other injuries.    
 
The list includes a foam dart gun that, W.A.T.C.H. says, looks too much like the real thing.  Another product called Poo-Dough because of allergy related injuries. The warning label says it contains wheat. 

'Splat X Smack Shot' is on the list for potential eye injuries. Then there's 'Bud' Skipit's. It's a cute wheely pull along but W.A.T.C.H says it has hub caps that can come off creating a choking hazard for young children. 
 
A dinosaur claw inspired by the Jurassic Park movie is on the list because of potential eye or facial injuries. Kick Flipper, W.A.T.C.H says, could cause head or impact injuries if proper safety gear is not worn. 

They group says the Kid Connection Doctor play set is a choking hazard. They also say Leonardo's Electronic Stealth Sword has potential for blunt force injuries.

And a Pull Along Zebra is on the list because of potential strangulation and entanglement injuries. 

But the Toy Association is firing back, saying the Consumer Product Safety Commission approved all of these toys as safe.
 
"We find that they're filled with misleading and inaccurate information and they unnecessarily frighten parents," says Rebecca Mond of The Toy Association. "All toys sold in the U.S. need to comply with very strict product safety requirement and need to be tested and certified with these compliances."
 
Three million units of toys were recalled in this past year alone.

W.A.T.C.H says its dangerous toy lists represents common problems and parents need to be made aware.
