There are toys on shelves that could be dangerous or toxic to your children.
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital hosted the release of this year's "Trouble in Toyland" report that lists toys that are toxic, pose as choking hazards or are too loud.
This year, experts are also warning about toys that connect to the internet and can record conversations.
"The collection of a child's personal information, combined with a toy's ability to connect to the internet or other devices through Bluetooth poses a problem for privacy and physical safety,” said Susan McGrath, Florida Consumer Action Network Executive Director.
Each year, more than 250,000 children visit the emergency room for a toy-related injury in the United States.
