TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - As a parent, it is important to be on alert for dangerous toys this season.

The warning comes from the annual report, "Troubles in Toyland" by the Arizona Pirg Education Fund.  The report concerns toys that could be toxic, a choking hazard, and magnets which if ingested could clog the intestines.

Some toys can even cause hearing loss.

Over the last 30 years, the Trouble in Toyland report has resulted in 150 recalls of questionable toys.
