Are the berries produced by the Nellie Stevens Holly or the Oak Leaf Red Holly poisonous to children?

Holly berries are toxic if consumed. If you're concerned about children eating holly berries, I'd recommend planting a shrub that does not produce berries. (Male hollies such as 'Blue Prince' do not produce berries.)
