BOSTON (AP) — A consumer advocacy group is reminding parents of the dangers of classic summertime toys like baby pools, high-powered water guns and inflatable pool rings.
Boston-based World Against Toys Causing Harm issued its annual list of 10 “summer safety traps” Tuesday.
Other toys on the list include water balloon slingshots, on-ground water slides such as the Slip ‘N Slide, and projectile-firing toy guns.
