Please don’t swallow the fish

We took our children (to include our 20-year-old son and his adorable girlfriend) to the Tallahassee Museum of Florida History. After visiting the museum, we went to the gift shop. There, in the middle, was a display with the cutest little animals – fish, dolphins, eagles, flamingos (of course), etc… We bought one of each. Our fight to Free the Egg didn’t enter my mind until the cashier put the little creatures into their bag. The bag had, on the back, a written warning of “not for under the age of three” and, wouldn’t you know it, the SAME IMAGE as on the Kinder Egg box and egg! Time to blog. I present one of the little creatures, a fish, next to a Kinder Egg capsule. One is legal, one is not:

Guess which is touted as being a choking hazard to children?

Because of the recent news article I posted (see the last blog) clears up who is behind the ban being enforced  (thanks a lot, Mars.  Jerks.),  I know that pointing out the stupidity of the ban based on the size/safety/warning label is moot (eat your heart out, Rick Springfield).  However, unless we get some sort of donation of, oh, I don’t know, a few million dollars, this is all we can do.  We do have a new campaign in the works to bring more awareness.  I hope to have that up and running by the end of July.  In the meantime, keep spreading the word, send in pics/videos of your kids (and adults) enjoying the Egg, and send Mars a nasty gram.  #FreeTheEgg
