Of course they aren't suitable for small children, but does that mean they shouldn't be available to larger children either?

Ferrero UK made a statement saying: "The European Commission and governmental bodies in the EU have found no evidence that toys marketed like Kinder Surprise pose any greater risk to children than other toys with small parts"

Surely this is just a case of needing a clearer warning than a ban?

In which case I hope you're clearly labelled as
"not suitable for children under 36 months"

"The manufacturing process involves heat, which means that the capsule often smells of chocolate. In addition, the way in which a child typically breaks open one of the eggs pushes the chocolate into contact with the toy container. A small child will be inclined to put the toy into his or her mouth and will not automatically distinguish the edible chocolate from the inedible toy."

Surely this is where natural selection kicks in, weeding out the stupid people before they grow up...

Seriously though, if your child is that young, surely you should be supervising what it's eating/doing rather than leaving it alone with things it can potentially choke on.
