Will CPSIA ban water wigglers?

    It just dawned on me that water wigglers would be considered designed for use by children under 12.

    If so, and if the manufacturer decides it isn't worth the cost to have them tested, they might be hard if not impossible to find after Feb. 10th. (On that date everything designed for use by children under 12 cannot be sold without being tested for lead. There are a few exceptions but it is up in the air how this will turn out.).

    Maybe we should buy a few extra now and put them away, just to be on the safe side?

    Toys r us told me that they no longer carry them because they are a choking hazard for children Easy to understand as Im sure a kid would bite it ! Might not be a bad idea to sttalk up on them because after awhile they will wear out and leak.
    I have heard of several people who that happened to while in the bator.
