The Missouri Public Interest Group is putting out its annual warning about dangerous toys. MoPIRG is especially worried about scooters this year. They’re getting more popular and not everyone wears a helmet. MOPIRG focuses most of its campaign on toys with small parts, though. Group spokeswoman Sara Copeland says parents need to be especially careful this Christmas season, with toys that may have tiny pieces in them that toddlers might be tempted to pop in their mouths. Around the country, 150,000 kids ended up in the emergency room last year; 16 of them died.
