Safety group releases 2017's 'Most Dangerous Toys' list

A consumer safety group released its latest list of the 'Most Dangerous Toys' to avoid gifting your little ones this holiday season.

The annual list, released Tuesday by the World Against Toys Causing Harm, Inc. (W.A.T.C.H.), is based on a review of the most recent childhood injury and fatality statistics.

'Behind the statistics, are real children that have been injured or tragically lost their life.' W.A.T.C.H. president Joan Siff announced during this morning's news conference.

The conference was held on behalf of Franciscan Children's Hospital in Brighton, Massachussets as a way to further demonstrate the hazardous selections.

The gadgets listed have been deemed 'inconsistent' with 'inadequate warnings, cautions and age recommendations,' according to an NBC report.  

The top ten most hazardous toys for 2017 are as follows: 

Pull Along Pony 

The Pull Along Pony has a 19-inch cord that raises concerns of strangulation in children of all ages
