A little background before I get started. Before my events on October 7th and 8th, specifically October 8th, it was determined that I had to made a disclaimer because in that show, we spray fake blood and use a pistol that fires blanks. Naturally, I took it to the next level and included warnings about partial nudity, “bad language”, gestures and other “naughty stuff” contained within the production. Fortunately, the “powers that be” loved my initiative and only made 2 corrections: Change the length and fix a stupid grammatical error I made. Done and done.
But I figured, why stop there? I added like 12 other disclaimers.
So, you can guess, this is in regards to disclaimers.
We got disclaimers on just about everything. Even our yoyos have disclaimers. I’ve gotten so many new ones recently that I still have most of the packaging.
Duncan FHZ stays “age Grade 6+” and “Do not discard packaging, contains important safety information”
Dunca string 5 pack: Ages 6+
YYF packages(various): Choking Hazard - small parts not for children under 3 yrs.
YYF packaging: This is where it gets interesting.
On the boxes for my DM2, Speeder 2 and my Unleashed, it’s the same box. Choking hazard - small parts not for children under 4 years old. My Big Yo bag has the same warning.
Now here is where I get worried:
On the box for my Fiesta XX:
WARNING: THIS IS NOT A TOY, for ages 13 & Up.
I swear, it’s right on there.
So, is it a toy for those UNDER 13, but for anyone OVER 13 it’s “equipment”?
I’m worried. My wife doesn’t want me playing with toys, yet I like to yoyo. And I’m not ready for 4A, but it looks like my hand may be forced. “See, it says it’s not a toy, now leave me alone so I can figure this darn thing out”.
So, is it a toy or not?
I’m confused. I think I’ll go play video games until my eyes cross and I pass out now. At least I know what those are.
