(W.A.T.C.H.) revealed its nominees for the "10 Worst Toys of 2017" on Tuesday.

An industry trade group, The Toy Association, dismissed the list as "needlessly frightening", saying all toys sold in the US meet "rigorous" safety standards.

"In a year when consumers are expected to spend 51 percent of their holiday budget online, W.A.T.C.H. highlighted the impact of online purchasing on toy safety", a news release from W.A.T.C.H. states. "Due to poor design, manufacturing and marketing practices, there are toys available for purchase today with potential to lead to serious injury and even death".

Here are the following toys parents are caregivers should be cautious about, particularly for the upcoming 2017 holiday season.
