Unsafe Toy List: Dora Guitar, Dora Backpack, More

Toxic Toys

  • Dora backpack, manufactured by Global Design Concepts Inc. and sold at Target. PIRG says the toy contains dangerous chemicals called phthalates. While the toy does not violate national standard, it does requires disclosure under Washington State and California laws. PIRG says the U.S. should adopt this standard nationwide.
  • Morphobot, manufactured by GreenBrier International Inc. and sold at Dollar Tree for $6.00. PIRG says the toy's 180 parts per million (ppm) of lead violates the current 100 ppm standard.

Potential Magnet Hazards

  • Snake Eggs, manufactured by GreenBrier International Inc. and sold at Dollar Tree for $1.00. PIRG notes that if the toy were "just a little smaller" it would be banned for kids under age 14 -- its marketed for kids age 4+.
