Electric Toy Tanks Dangerous for Children?

Swedish electrical safety authorities say they are still loosing the battle to ban what they claim are dangerous war toys – such as tanks which give a playmate operating an enemy tank electric chocks.

The experts argue that they are unable to prove right now that the electricy-induced spasms are harmful – but that Norwegian studies show that it can take years to see to see if a sensitive child has been hurt by the jolts – and that epileptic youngsters face the highest risk.
