Just wait until the boys discover that they can break open the tubes and
pour the chemical over their faces and hands and arms and run around in
the dark! I am not sure how toxic the material is, but I am concerned.
We have seen this happen - so far no one has been sick from it. I am not
sure if we have a potential problem or not.
