Kids, No Balloons For You!
 
Children to be banned from blowing up balloons, under EU safety rules

Children to be banned from blowing up balloons, under EU safety rules - Telegraph

Quote:

Children are to be banned from taking part in traditional Christmas games, from blowing up balloons to blowing on party whistles, because of new EU safety rules that have just entered into force.

The EU toy safety directive, agreed and implemented by Government, states that balloons must not be blown up by unsupervised children under the age of eight, in case they accidentally swallow them and choke.

Despite having been popular favourites for generations of children, party games including whistles and magnetic fishing games are to be banned because their small parts or chemicals used in making them are decreed to be too risky.

Apparently harmless toys that children have enjoyed for decades are now regarded by EU regulators as posing an unacceptable safety risk.

Whistle blowers, that scroll out into a a long coloured paper tongue when sounded a party favourite at family Christmas meals are now classed as unsafe for all children under 14.

The new rules are designed to protect children from the chance that a piece of the whistle could be swallowed and cause choking.

They are obviously being paid far too much money and have nothing constructive to do. Maybe we should claim danger money for all the years of our childhood! ;)

Oh, thank God for that.

Solid food is banned because it has been deemed a choking hazzard.
