Recalled You might as well upend the toy box and just throw away all your magnetic toys. It’ll save time.

Some 1.3 million MagnaMan magnetic toy figurines – colorful samurais, gladiators, aliens and Vikings – were recalled today because the toys’ tiny magnets come loose. Swallow one and your child could choke. Swallow two or more, and they’ll tear holes through his intestines. And that’s not all. Also recalled today: 1.1 million magnetic toys for preschoolers , sold under the name Magtastic and Magnetix Jr. (The toys, we mean, not the toddlers.)

Honey, go play in the street. It’s safer.

  1. Mrs. Mom Says:

    Instead of focusing on all the things that could go wrong and harm our children, why don’t we educate the PARENTS on how to be parents. If you have a toddler, you should know that these toys are not suitable for that age group. As a child from the seventies, we didn’t have disclaimers and warning labels, but my parents made sure that I was safe, that they knew what kinds of things I was listening to, and what I read. Its not logical or even practical, hell even healthy, for us to live in the dilusion that we can put this plastic bubble around our children and protect them from, well, according to people like you, everything! They have to experience to grow. Now, true, choking is not a growing experience, but what we can do as parents is let them learn for themselves!
