First this is ugly--the background is not white all but an cheap looking gray-green. I imagine I could pick this up for 1/4 the price in any $ store. But more importantly it has huge labels on it warning of lead poisoning risks and saying it is intended for decorative use only. Besides the fact that it is so unattractive that the statement is a cruel joke, I don't know about you but I use cotton swabs in and around my body and that of my kids. While the risk might be small it's more than I want to take.
