Potentially dangerous counterfeit toys smuggled into Georgia

ATLANTA - The holidays mean many parents will be shopping for toys. But you may not be aware of the potentially dangerous fakes out there.

Channel 2’s Tom Regan traveled to the Port of Savannah to see what officers are doing to keep counterfeit toys out of children’s hands.

This year’s hot toys include Hatchimals and the Nintendo NES Classic Edition gaming system.

“I don’t even know what they are. Shopkins, I am buying Shopkins. I guess that’s some of the hot toys,” said shopper Melissa Moseley.

“If there’s a toy that’s very popular, you can be sure someone is going to try to counterfeit it,” said Lisa Brown, U.S. Customs & Border Protection Area Port director.
