Thousands of toy-related injuries are treated in emergency rooms nationwide each year. So, when you're out shopping for the perfect gift to tuck under the tree, think safety first. Here are tips to keep little ones happy and out of the ER.

While the year’s hottest toy may be the elusive and much-sought-after Hatchimals may not be on this list, other toys such as a famous pig and even Superman himself have found their way onto a consumer watchdog’s “naughty list.”

Toysafety.org has released its list of the most dangerous toys of 2016. The Massachusetts-based non-profit has a mission to stop children from being harmed, or worse, from playing with seemingly harmless toys.

According to uspirg.org, another consumer group, there were 264 toy-related deaths in 2014.

Here are some of the toys that made the list.

Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddles Family

It provides choking hazards for children under 3 years old.

Kids Time Baby Children’s Elephant Pillow

It has potential for suffocation.

Flying Heroes Superman Launcher

It has the potential to damage a child’s eyes and face.
