Not even bad girls and boys deserve this aisle of misfit toys, says a consumer advocacy group that unveiled a list Tuesday, Nov. 21, of potentially unsafe holiday gifts for children.

The California Public Interest Research Group Education Fund’s 32nd annual “Trouble in Toyland” report lists toys the group considers hazardous because of high lead content, privacy concerns or other safety issues.
