Christmas Shopping List: Helmets, Yes...Magnets, No.
Plenty of kids would like to see a new bike, or maybe a skateboard, by the tree on Christmas morning.
And they might like to get a new helmet to go along with those wheels, according to La Crosse attorney Brian Weber. Which is a change from when their parents were kids, and head protection wasn't cool for biking or boarding, but Weber says young riders are used to helmets now. Weber, from the Johns Flaherty law firm, participates in a yearly toy-safety report. He says the toys with wheels are high on the holiday hazard list...along with toys that include magnets or other small parts that can be swallowed.
