What gets me Stick is we seemed to get threw to adulthood without to many issues . I did try to climb my dresser once and it toppled on top of me , and there was the incident with the outlet and the paper clip , but we're still kicking so what gives ?

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

All the regulations are what caused me and a few others to stop making toys for kids. Over the years we produced thousands of cars, trucks, boats, planes, etc. Now there are so many regs that we worry about not following all the rules. Like, am I sure 100% that the wheels on my toy car won't come off? Is the string on my pull toy an inch short? Do I need to label "unfit for children under the age of ???" ?

We all agree that toys need to be safe. Commercially made toys especially from other countries should meet standards. But at some point parents need to take responsibility.

I agree Rick, that we survived to a ripe old age, but no need to have dangerous products on the market....Especially where young children are concerned...

An outlet and a paper clip? LOL.... does your hair stand on end during a thunderstorm/????

That's a funny storey . I wasn't in school yet so I think I was around 5 or so . I opened up a paper clip and shoved it in the holes to see what would happen . Well a flame shot out of the outlet and I bolted so fast I think I created a vacuum as the flame chased me around the corner part way up the stairs till it diminished .
What possessed me to do that I haven't a clue , I guess it's just what kids do lol
