Fidget spinners made the list of the top 10 worst toys this holiday season when it comes to safety hazards.

Each year, "World Against Toys Causing Harm" (W.A.T.C.H.) unveils its list at Boston Children's Hospital.

They say fidget spinners are a choking hazard because of small parts.

A Wonder Woman battle action sword made the list for the risk of blunt force injuries, and the Nerf Zombie Strike Dreadbolt crossbow could have the potential to cause eye injuries.

Tolo's Pull Along Pony reportedly has a string that's longer than the 12-inch industry standard.

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