AG Lisa Madigan's Top Tips for a Safe Holiday Shopping Season

As Illinoisans gear up for the holiday season, Attorney General Lisa Madigan released her annual "Safe Shopping Guide" with a list of toys and products that have been recalled over the past year.

From toy cars to youth all-terrain vehicles, the guide has detailed descriptions and pictures of every product you'll want to avoid while holiday shopping.

And for the first time, this year's guide also offers Internet safety tips for parents who are considering buying smartphones, tablets and other connected devices for their kids.

"Today's kids are interested and skilled in the latest technology," Madigan said in a statement. "While there are many benefits to our kids using technology, there are pitfalls and dangers every parent should be aware of. Luckily, implementing a few rules and practices can promote safe and positive online experiences for our children."

Here are Madigan's Top 10 tips and also a copy of the "Safe Shopping Guide" with all the recalled products.
