10 watches for your Christmas list

by admin on December 13, 2017

Goooooooal!

Unless you hitch a ride to the North Pole with Santa, there will be no getting away from next year’s footballing extravaganza, as television networks all over the globe zoom in on every kick, pass and goal from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia (June 14th to July 15th, in case you hadn’t heard). Get in on the action with the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 sport watch with its six must-have features: unidirectional rotating bezel, sapphire crystal, screw-down crown, SuperLuminova® markers and hands, double safety clasp and 300-metre water-resistance. So if your team gets knocked out after their first match, at least you’ll be able to drown your sorrows in the pool. Of course Italy got there first, having foundered during qualifications.

Christmas morning can be an exciting time for families. While parents want to see their children happy as they open presents, they also want to make sure they’re safe.

That’s easier to do thanks to the World Against Toys Causing Harm, an organization that monitors toy safety, because it has just released its annual “10 Worst Toys” list.

To determine the results, researchers examined products with “poor design, manufacturing and marketing practices” that have the “potential to lead to serious injury and even death,” the site read.

They also scouted “toys with inconsistent and inadequate warnings, cautions and age recommendations as well as other classic safety hazards that continue to re-appear year after year,” they said.

The Hallmark “Itty Bittys” stacking toy was a part of the round-up. While it was recalled over the summer due to fabric pieces to could pose a choking hazard, it is still available online.

The group also also highlighted Tolo Toys’ Pull Along Pony. It’s marketed for kids over age 1, but the chord is 19-inches-long.

Nerf’s Zombie Strike Zone was the list, too. It’s pull back lever is dangerous, because it could cause injuries to the face and eyes.
