Cool Toys and the Sucky Adults Who Hate Them

Now THIS is a gift.

As we move closer and closer to that time of the year that can only be called Kiddie Mardi Gras, cranky angry parents are already clamoring for all the cool toys to be taken off the shelves.  There is an organization called World Against Toys Causing Harm (WATCH) that actually has an event to highlight the most dangerous toys! Sissies. They’re main attraction this year was an air rocket with a warning label that said “Misuse of this product can cause SEVERE INJURY, including loss of an eye or death”.  I’m sorry, but folks…that’s frickin’ AWESOME.  James Swartz, director of WATCH (and uptight priss), demonstrated the rocket INDOORS and had the gall to act astonished when the thing popped through a ceiling tile.

Let me state for the record that James Swartz is the type of person who RUINED MY CHILDHOOD.  That’s right! Battlestar Galatica toys with firing missles? GONE. Or how about the fact that my Boba Fett action figure was supposed to have a firing rocket on his back!?

    this is my fav. description of why a toy is bad

    W.A.T.C.H. OUT!  This toy is marketed for children as young as 1 year old, yet is sold with four slender, rigid wooden dowels 1/2 inch in diameter, and ranging in length from approximately 3 inches to 5 ¾ inches. The dowels could be mouthed by oral-age children, potentially leading to a choking tragedy.

    or this one\

    W.A.T.C.H. OUT!  This activity toy for babies is sold with a rigid, plastic mallet, intended to “pound” the colorful balls accompanying the product. The mallet’s slender handle, which is approximately 5 ½ inches long, could be mouthed and occlude a child’s airway. Oral-age children have been known to choke on toys with long, slender handles which become lodged in their throats.

    what is w/ these people and choking?
