Some childrens toys as loud as a chain saw, UCI study says

That loud toy under the Christmas tree might do more than drive parents
crazy. Researchers at UC Irvine have found that some children’s toys, if
held close enough, can reach decibel levels similar to a subway train
or a chain saw. Researchers suggest buying toys with speakers on the bottom and testing
them in the store to see if they’re painful to the ear. For noisy,
must-have toys already under the tree, they recommend supervision and
putting tape over the speakers to lessen the sound.
