SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The annual “Trouble in Toyland” report on toy safety was released Tuesday to warn parents about dangerous toys before they start buying their holiday gifts.
The 31st annual report was released by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group.
The survey lists a variety of toys that pose dangers to children. From choking hazards, to lead paint, the toys do not meet consumer product safety standards in the U.S.
The group found that the toys recalled for lead, batteries or other hazards are still available for sale in online stores.
Here are some of the toys parents should avoid:
Tough Treadz Auto Carrier
- sold at Family Dollar Stores

Tiny Trail Bicycles
