Every year local news outlets drag out that old chesnut, the most dangerous toys of the year. This year they focus on Heely’s aka Massive Head Trauma in a Shoe and a Superman lamp that could, according to W.A.T.C.H., a fey child protection/consumer group, kill your children and then micturate on their graves.
The manufacturer’s proclamation that the figurine is not a toy has little meaning to small children, who may be attracted to the figurine, and thus be exposed to the potential electrical hazard.
Kids are also attracted to lye, car batteries and dynamite. Just put the damn lamp on a high shelf and keep junior away from the stepladder. Danger averted.
