FAIRBANKS- The Alaska Public Interest Research Group recently released their 2013 toy safety guide. The guide highlights specific toys that consumers should avoid this holiday season because they are dangerous for children. They found toys on store shelves toys that pose choking hazards, are excessively loud, or toys that contain lead, toxic metals, or strong magnets. A spokesperson from the organization, Jessie Peterson, says holiday shoppers should examine toys carefully before making a purchase.
