The United States Public Interest Research Group, a non-profit consumer advocacy organization, released its 24th annual report on toy safety this week. The report, entitled "Trouble in Toyland," cited an Elmo lunchbox for overly high levels of dangerous chemicals, a dinosaur picture book for too much lead, and a Fisher Price phone for excessive noise levels. But the list of dangerous or inappropriate toys didn't stop there...
