nat's stats

Chattanooga, Tennessee—



Christmas would look very different if it were spent in the hospital with an accidental injury.Luckily, the days of lawn darts are long behind us, but there are still plenty of dangerous toys you can give your kids for Christmas.  Can you guess what the MOST dangerous one is?


A study looked at how many injuries different types of toys have caused over the last five years, and there’s a clear winner.


SCOOTERS . . . like the ones made by the brand Razor . . . have caused over 190,000 injuries since 2016.  That includes injuries to kids and adults.


Balls are next at 108,000 injuries.  That includes footballs, baseballs, and every other type of ball.  So the fact that scooters have racked up almost twice as many victims is pretty impressive.


Toy cars like Hot Wheels are next, followed by building sets that come with small pieces.  So choking hazards and things kids can swallow are part of it.


Frisbees and boomerangs are fifth, followed by games and game parts . . . dolls and action figures . . . toy boxes or chests . . . tricycles . . . and balloons.
