The organization says: “According to the latest statistics from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there were an estimated 240,000 toy-related injuries in the U.S. in 2016, and a reported 35 children died from toy-related incidents from 2014 to 2016, .i Between 1990 and 2011, there was a 40% increase in toy-related injuries.
