3 and up my butt!

February 29, 2008

This toy says 3 and up! 3 years and up my butt! Honestly what makes a toy 3 and up? Is it the fact that babies are likely to choke on small pieces?? Because this toy has NOTHING detachable!? Is it due to the fact that they figure it takes a child with 3 years of intelligence to figure out how to make the gadgets move? Because my soon to be 9th month old has got it all figured out. So I am sitting here contemplating what makes a toy appropriate for that age group? I have picked up soft infant rattles and checked the tags. Are you aware that most of those stuffed animal infant rattles say 3 and up as though a 3 year old is going to all of a sudden have a dire need for a rattle?!?!?! I am highly confused at how they decide on what makes a toy safe for that age group. And quite honestly I am surprised they don’t put 3 and up on EVERY toy just for the sole fact that if something were to happen to a smaller child they couldn’t be sued because after all they did put a warning on the tag; especially since we ALL look at tags! I mean don’t you look at the tag of EVERY stuffed animal you buy your child? (This is sarcasm) lol anyways my children love this toy so I say forget you 3 and up toys! You make my 9 month old and 2 year old VERY happy :)

Why do they decide what is age appropriate!
