KRISTEN’S STORY - WINNER

According to a new survey, women tend to be happier than men being single. The survey found the majority of women – 61% – are happy when their relationship status is single, compared to about half of men. One psychologist suggests this is true because relationships are exhausting for women. In much the same way women spend more time doing housework than men, they also spend more time maintaining romantic relationships. Seems having a partner ends up costing a lot of time and energy.

PRODUCER J.D.’S STORY (IN FOR FRECKLES)

A lot of parents will be heading to the toy store in the coming weeks to get their kids something fun for the holidays but not every toy out there is suitable for your little boy or girl. In fact, some can be downright dangerous.

The watchdog group World Against Toys Causing Harm, a.k.a. W.A.T.C.H, is out to make sure every kid has a safe holiday season and they've just come out with their annual list of the “10 Worst Toys,” items that could potentially hurt the kids who they are made for.

Toys making this year’s list include:

Wonder Woman Battle Sword – potential for blunt force injuries

Spider-man Spider-Drone – potential for eye and body impact injuries

Hallmark’s “Itty Bittys” Baby Stacking Toy –potential choking hazard

Pull Along Pony – potential for strangulation and entanglement injuries

Hand Fidget Spinners – potential for choking injuries

Nerf Zombie Strike Deadbolt Crossbow – potential for eye injuries

Slackers Slackline Classic Series Kit – potential for strangulation and fall-related injuries

Oval Xylophone – potential for ingestion and choking injuries

Jets Heel Wheels – potential for blunt impact and fire-related burn injuries

Brianna Babydoll – potential for choking injuries

Now if you were planning on buying any of these toys for you kids, know that not everyone thinks they are so dangerous. The Toy Association describes the list as “needlessly frightening,” although they do caution parents to pay attention to the suitable age range listed on the package.
