View Full Version : Baby safe?
03-07-2006, 07:09 PM
I just loved the Giant Microbes idea and thought it would be funny to give as a gift to some expecting relatives who are expecting.
Well, the question is are the dolls safe for babies/small children?
03-09-2006, 03:33 PM
I guess, but the informative tags should be removed to avoid hazards.
03-09-2006, 10:10 PM
Yeah, it says the tags should be removed when giving to a child under 3 years of age, so they should be safe if you lose the tags:D

The tag on AIDS says, not recommended for children under 3. They have eyes, most stuffed things that have them are not, though some are, considered baby safe. I have a neice under 3 and we have never had any issues giving her stuffed animals not recommended for her age, she never tries to pull the eyes out and eat them, I'd be quite concerned if she started...

Actually, It says that on all of them. Probably the eyes. But, i think sleeping sickness would be safe, because the eyes are embroidered, not plastic.

I think that even the potentially safe ones are going to say the not recommended bit, I think there is a testing process that is required to get labeled as safe for an infant and it likely costs money, plus there is the liability thing just in case something does happen. Anyway who would want to give a microbe to someone that is just going to get it messy and ruined (I love kids but know how destructive they can be).

No kidding. Think of the drool! Poor microbes. If you think you can handle it, you should go to the picture sharing thing and view the microbe sam picture. Poor Ulcer! Oh, while you're there, look at my pics that I took of my microbes, they're good:) .
04-18-2006, 01:47 AM
OK I didn't realise anyone was using that photoshare thing, there are some great pics on it, I loved the ones you posted Giardia! Sam is a total cutie but I still wouldn't let him touch my microbes, that is what cheap teddy bears are for (I have a young niece, I know).

Well my 1 year old cousin Ari loves my microbes. She takes them and snuggles with them and they always come back in perfect condition. She can't really eat them 'cause she has sort of a small mouth....anyway she's not really the drooling type.My 2 year old cousin Elijah loves them too. I had alot of trouble getting them back so I promised I would buy some for them.
04-18-2006, 07:40 PM
I don't like little kids touching my stuff. It's always stressful when they're picking stuff up and throwing it on the floor!
04-18-2006, 08:00 PM
AAAAGH, now I have to take another photo, because I have new microbes! Maybe I will wait 'till I have all the current microbes, then take a new one!:D :D :D :D
04-19-2006, 03:18 AM
My niece would likely give them cuddles and loves but not want to give them back, I never let her touch them. I'd worry about the tag getting messed up, is is only 2.5 and is quite destructive...

She is starting to learn gentle, it is kinda hit or miss though and I would not gamble one of my beloved microbes...
04-20-2006, 10:17 PM
Neither would I...All 31 are worth over 200 dollars canadian/175 dollars and 66 cents US!
04-21-2006, 02:22 AM
No they cost that much, their worth is subjective, I think they are priceless :D!
04-21-2006, 11:59 AM
Very true.:D :D :D :D
04-21-2006, 01:51 PM
It is like those credit card comercials, not sure if they have them in Canada, but they show a series of scenes and say something $X, something else $X, something(s) $X, what they all add up too priceless... Some of them are really cute/clever...
04-21-2006, 07:15 PM
You mean like:
Decongestant for your cold: $10
Laundry detergent for you bed-bug infested sheets: $5
Nit comb for your kid's head lice: $2
Avoiding these problems in the first place: Priceless
There are some things money can't buy. for everything else, there's MasterCard.
Lol, I made that up on the spot. Brilliant isn't it?
P.S. even if we didn't have that commercial (which we do), we still have Fox!;) :D :D :D

I know!:D :D :D :D
04-24-2006, 10:00 PM
Good one! Good to know we share some of the same wonderful comercials ;):rolleyes:! Ah do you have dairy queen and their newest comercial with the pregant woman dreaming her husband is giving birth, that one cracks me up, "You did this to me!" tehehehehe :D!!!!
04-24-2006, 10:00 PM
Fox is one of our better stations!
04-25-2006, 05:54 PM
The DQ commercial! Classic!:D :D :D :D
04-26-2006, 11:09 PM
I think that is one of the best commercials ever, and I've seen some good ones! Men having babies, that would rock! That is why seahorses are one of my favorite critters, they have the right idea!!! :p
04-28-2006, 10:06 PM
Yeah, all the men do is jump around and be all happy and exited...if only they knew women's pain...muahaha:D :D :D :D

Since I have not had a kid I can't say for sure but appendicitis might get up there, I'm certainly going to be comparing them if I ever do give birth! If I had not been so weak from not eating for a few days I would have likely kicked the doc in the head when he tried their favorite diagnostic test, they put their fingers on it, press down, hold it for a few seconds and then pull back real fast. If the patient screams, curses, dies, kills the doc, or any combination of those then their appendix needs to come out. I'm so glad I only had one appendix!!!!

I did find childbirth painful come to think of it, I was my sister's coach and had to hold her leg and she was cutting off my circulation and after awhile it got really heavy. Plus there was the trama of seeing a grey/blue head come out facing me. The miracle of life is truely disturbing and not at all beautiful in my opinion, I want a sheet covering it so I don't have to see it again if I have any kids! After the baby is out and has some of the blood wiped off and breaths so it is not blue/grey then it is beautiful.
04-30-2006, 03:38 PM
well, I imagine it would be kind of hard to see yourself giving birth
04-30-2006, 07:26 PM
They have mirrors in the room so you can watch, disturbing but I suppose it can help to see ones progress... It is just gross!
05-01-2006, 10:54 PM
I really wouldn't want to watch myself! I'd ask them to cover the mirror up!
05-01-2006, 11:39 PM
The mirror is optional, my sister refused it at first and changed her mine at the end, which forced me to see it too thus tramatising me!
