Remember these from when you were little, they didn't last long before they sprang a leak but they were good for an hour or two of fun.

But for modern European children, no more, they are no longer deemed safe for children under 14 under new rules promulgated by the EU.
Whistle blowers, that scroll out into a a long coloured paper tongue when sounded – a party favourite at family Christmas meals – are now classed as unsafe for all children under 14.

The new rules are designed to protect children from the chance that a piece of the whistle could be swallowed and cause choking.
You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried.

This is just ridiculous. Equally, it just shows the degree of social engineering actively seeking to control and modify behaviour. It's alarming to see how readily it is accepted.
