Dangerous Toys: How do you really shop safe?
Black Friday is nearly upon us, and if you're a parent you're probably trying to figure out what to get your kids. It seems like everyone is releasing a list to help parents:
- W.A.T.C.H. has already put out its list of ten most dangerous toys for the year.
- U.S. PIRG has been hyping its "Trouble in Toyland" shopping guide and their "smart phone website", but it sadly doesn't deliver. If you want to read a bunch of boring statistics that will make you paranoid while shopping for toys, then by all means, read "Trouble in Toyland". If you're looking for a guide that's actually helpful and doesn't insult your intelligence, I recommend you look elsewhere than U.S. PIRG's mobile shopping guide.
- Fortunately for parents, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan released a safe shopping guide that's actually useful on Monday to make sure that anything you buy for your kids is safe.
