They recently recalled Bumbo chairs (small foam baby chairs for kids 3-8 months of age or so) because parents would put them on a table and then the kid would inevitably fall off and smack his head on presumably the concrete the parents have the kid perched over.

In other words, parents are morons.

FTFA: Check out Aunraya's blocked intestines and other X-ray oddities.

Okay, I admit that I was curious about what her X-rays looked like, but including a link to it in TFA like this seems about on par for the amount of class I've come to expect from internet news.

Since they had to go back 3 generations to find someone fit to care for the kid, I have a feeling that the family is just full of win.

i've seen smaller versions of these balls.They used to be sand sized when dry and about the size of the end of your finger when wetted. i have some that are ammo for a kids popgun (no competition to Nerf) that explode before they leave the gun, and i saw them originally used lucky bamboo plant substrate. So once again something from China is killing babies.

seriously though why take something like that and say, "ooh, we could make this really big and see how dangerous we can make it" idiots is why.

Yes, the balls.

I love that the company didn't give some bullshiat line and called the child's guardian out for being an idiot. I wish more companies were like that when it obviously is the consumers fault.

How does it respond to taunting?
 
2012-09-18 12:29:03 PM
A friend of mine's four year old son died when he decided to put a large rubber ball in his mouth. He accidentally tried to breath in and it became lodged in his throat. His grandmother was watching him at the time and didn't know what to do, she called 911 but by the time they got there it was too late. It's been a couple of years and my friend still cries at times when he sees a little boy who reminds him of his boy. I'm not saying balls should be banned, instead, parents and care givers should be familiar enough to use CPR/obstructed breathing techniques in case something like this happens. Seriously, all it takes is a couple of hours, there are tons of inexpensive trainings offered, don't put it off if you have kids, especially little ones.

I found them on amazon and some dumbass gave them 1 star because of this.

Are they going to negatively review every product that's dangerous to infants, even if said product is not intended for infants?

That's when you leave your own stunning review of the product, and add on a snippet about how it worked so well for you because you kept your children away from it like a responsible adult.

Proper corporate response in these situations:

We are sorry to hear about this unfortunate incident. Our products have been sold to over X million people worldwide. Once in a great while, a consumer will ignore the safety warnings on our product, or will use the product in an unreasonably dangerous and unforeseeable way. We regret these incidents, and when we learn of one we evaluate our product, packaging, and warnings to see if we could have undertaken any additional, reasonable precautions. In this case, we have determined that no changes to our product are warranted. We continue to encourage consumers to read the packaging and product warnings when purchasing a product, especially those that may fall into the hands of a small child.

Why does this happen? It's similar to plumbing. When there is a complete blockage, things back up behind it and pile up, causing the bowel to get bigger. Because nothing can get through, the areas after the blockage are smaller than usual.

Well, thanks there, Dr. Sagan.

That's dumb. That said, don't let your kids have dangerous toys. If Fisher Price came out with a Tiny Tot Chainsaw fun for all ages! and said only use under adult supervision you still should not buy your kid a farking chainsaw.

It's really the maintenance schedule more than anything else. Every single day there's something that's got to be tweaked, adjusted, fixed, repaired, fueled, etc.

Imagine if Lucas made the wiring for a Jaguar, and it was a helicopter. That's what kids are like. One the upside, when you've got something like that, it's awe-inspiring to watch it working.
