Toy risks

    Thomas Vesper is ruining the holiday fun for kids. Their parents are probably thanking him, though. The Egg Harbor Township attorney has released his annual list of unsafe toys.


    Vesper, a personal injury lawyer, began hosting a Toy Safety Workshop about 20 years when he came across his first case of a child injured by a plaything. Now he’s gearing up for the 21st annual workshop, as the Press of Atlantic City reports.

    On the list? trampolines, rockets, crib mobiles, Nerf guns and martial arts/boxing equipment, among other things.
