LISTED AS ONE OF THE TOP 10 MOST DANGEROUS TOYS THIS YEAR! I purchased this for my 14 month old son, and he has really enjoyed it. It doesn't hold his attention for long, but nothing does. Sadly, my mother just informed me that it was listed as one of the top 10 most dangerous toys this year! I did some research myself, so check it out on toysafetydotcom . The spikes seemed too lage to me to do this, but apparently it is possible for a child of 18 months which the toy is recommended for may swallow one and completely block their throat. Very disappointing. It's so hard to keep them safe even when you try!
