Through the excellent Sociological Images blog came word of these fantastic alternative warning labels, made by Gever Tulley for Make Magazine. The magazine itself is a wonderful source for super-crafty people, backed by some witty contributers who are as sharp as their X-acto knives.
I would love to print these out and sticker them all over some of the toys being offered as ‘must haves’ for the holidays. I remember getting some of them when I was small and the disappointment of realizing that owning the thing wasn’t nearly as fun as the moment of receiving it. We’re getting close to that classic ‘£49.95 on the toy and she just played with the box’ time of year, so support the people you know in making solid choices when it comes to their child’s play opportunities.
