Drugs Make Craft Time More Fun
Kid’s toys just aren’t what they used to be. The age of innocence is over. Now instead of a wholesome game of jacks, curious kids can have the Australian born Aqua Dotz (AKA Bindeez) a crafty arts and crafts toy with small colored beads that if ingested, induce hallucinations, unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and even death! But with beads that look so scrumptious and sweet, who could blame the kids for having a little taste?
The beads were originally designed to be dampened by water and then fused together to make groovy colorful designs and shapes. While quite an ingenious idea, the designers slipped up a little bit; these Aqua Dotz are coated in a chemical that when swallowed releases some good ol’ fashioned Georgia Homeboy (gamma hydroxy butyrate), a popular version of the infamous date rape. Global toy pandemonium erupted when two kids in Australia were hospitalized after eating these tasty trips-disguised-as-art. The kids recovered fully but Aqua Dotz may need a trip to rehab before making a comeback.
Spin Master gives their scouts honor saying drugging the children was not their intention.Toys ‘R Us spokesman Mary Zanette, assures the paranoid parentals out there that the toy has been removed from shelves only for precautionary measures while further investigation proceeds. Unfortunately, if Toys ‘R Us does go through with a full recall, you’ll have to go to the streets to get your fix of Aqua Dotz.
