PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- More than 2.5 million children are injured in accidents across the country each summer.

So, the consumer group, World Against Toys Causing Harm (W.A.T.C.H.), unveiled its list of toys they say parents should avoid.

The event took place at Franciscan Children's Hospital in Boston.
