Here’s a shocking update, putting little wheels on the bottom of your shoes is dangerous. No! Yes! 1600 emergency room visits last year were blamed on roller shoes or “heelys.” For those of you not familiar with “heelys” they’re the wheeled shoe that sends children floating past you like the nun in Blues Brothers as you walk around Target shopping for paper towels and Diet Coke.
The W.A.T.C.H. List of the 10 worst toys of 2006 is out! This list claims to feature toys that have the potential to “cause childhood injuries, or even death.” What evil toys made the list this year?

Jeepers.
