All Aboard the Meme Express – Monday, December 1, 2008
December 1st is Safe Toys and Gifts Month. As holiday shoppers flock to stores, or as internet browsers surf the ‘Net on this Cyber Monday, folks are reminded to check safety features and be cautious of potential dangers of certain toys and gifts.Is Santa stocking the sleigh with safe toys this year?
Today, the Meme Express prompt is twofold:
Here are a few optional questions, to get you started.
Have you ever bought an unsafe toy or gift?
What makes a toy or gift dangerous?
What are safest toys, in your opinion?
Have you ever purchased a toy or gift that was recalled for hazardous reasons?
What toys did you enjoy as a child, that have since been banned for safety reasons?
What current toys or gifts might be dangerous?
Do you consider safety (personal and environmental), when you purchase toys and gifts?
Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create a drawing, a poem, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
