Fidget spinners, a Nerf crossbow and Spider-Man drone all topped a consumer safety group’s list of the 10 toys your child is most likely to shoot their eye out with this year.
The Boston-based World Against Toys Causing Harm, or WATCH, unveiled the list on Tuesday at a children’s hospital.
This year, the organization focused the list on toys with small parts that put children at risk of choking and toys with inadequate warning labels. According to WATCH, at least 15 toys have been recalled since last December, including some hugely popular fidget spinners containing high levels of lead.
The nonprofit has created its naughty list of toys for over four decades.

The full list of 2017s worst toys:
This drone is just as powerful as any other, as is its damage or injury probability, WATCH said, due to its multiple high-speed rotating rotor blades.
A potential for strangulation and entanglement injuries via this menacing plastic pony is cited.
