Kid Safety Labels We Want to See – Protect your kids from bland toys

Image

I had a pretty adventurous childhood. Building things, racing, riding and crashing things, breaking at least 3 bones (I’m not sure about the toe) along the way. Now as the father of a toddler who is starting to realise that climbing is fun, that egg cartons can become trains and toilet rolls can become giraffes, these Kid Safety Labels look like a fabulous idea to me. Just don’t stick them on my Lego. [via Book of Joe].

… he and I agree that [American] kids are raised in an overly cautious manner, out of fear that they might get hurt and we are limiting their ability to explore a wider range of experience. In place of traditional safety warnings on kids’ toys.

    I was playing with knives and axes by the time I was six. Early on, I learned how to deal with dangerous work situations and how not to get hurt. Simple things like not putting yourself into moving live machinery, shutting off and disconnecting power (important lesson one of my buddies only learned after losing two fingers) before attempting adjustments or repair came soon afterwards.

    While this life experience will seem extreme to most people, my parents believed that safety was learning how not to get hurt in the rural situation we grew up in. To not learn this by being over-protective was to deny children necessary learning experience and prime children with no sense of self preservation to suffer certain disaster.

  • Of all the Sonic games,this is the one that will always be my favorite.While this one kept the elements of Sonic the Hedgehog,it also improved on it.Of course,it also introduced everyone’s favorite flying fox,Miles Prower AKA Tails.The story is fun.Dr.Robotnik is kidnapping animals again,while on a search for the Chaos Emeralds so he can activate his ultimate weapon,the Death Egg!Sonic is on a quest to stop him,accompanied by his new friend Tails.The zones are BIG!My definate favorite is Metropolis Zone.The music is great,definately better than the first Sonic game.The best new addition is the Spin Dash.You should definately get this game for your Genesis!You will love it.
