The safety group World Against Toys Causing Harm, or WATCH., has released its list of top ten Summer Safety Traps for 2018. 

The group compiles a list of important safety information for parents, caregivers, and anyone to help keep kids safe during the warm weather months and all year round.

Topping the list is Water Balloon Slingshots. These toys have the the potential dual threat of blunt force trauma to eyes and choking hazards for young children.

Lawn Darts, even though they are blunted, were number two on the list. They're intended to be thrown during use in outdoor games, but they could potentially lead to blunt force head injuries.

The third most dangerous item is Low-Riding Wheeled Toys, such as plastic tricycles.
