They can cause choking, strangulation, trauma or eye damage.
The group says you should stay away from the Nickelodeon Nella Princess Knight Pillow Pet, which has choking risks and battery acid leakage issues. There’s also the Nerf Vortex VTX Praxis Blaster, which could cause eye or facial injuries, and the Pull-Along Dog for entanglement and strangulation injuries.
The Cabbage Patch Kids Dance Time Doll and Zoo Jamz Xylophone also both have possible choking hazards.
