    I have fallen out of more trees and jumped off of more roofs, and sun myself in to a vomiting rage on a merry go round more than I can even remember. Real lawn darts, monkey bars with exposed screws and hard dirt at the bottom (no wussy mulch padding), playing in the rock/dirt pile next to the back hoe at the local construction site, and on and on and on...
    AH...why does this sound hilariously familiar? Actually, we took the merry go round thingies a few steps too far. My buddies and I used to take long strands of rope to tie to one of the handle bars and proceed to wrap the entire thing like a yo-yo. Do the math... 4 guys, one in the middle of the spinner, 3 grabbing the rope and running it out as fast and as hard as possible. Ah...real kids toys. What do kids call "play" these days?

    I have seen a video from the side of a school building that caught a kid going down a slide and it caught on part of the slide on their way down and choked them off. It was not good to watch that kid struggling to get it loose and could not get his footing, and then die.

    It can happen, and has. Possibly not with theirs, but it has with coats, jackets, etc.

    That a sad fact I won't disagree with. I would rather the government put out a warning rather than telling adult what they may buy. How much power do we want to give to the government?

    Personally for cold weather I wouldn't wear a hooded sweatshirt if it didn't have a string I could use to tighten the hood with.

    For some reason my wife and I are huge fans of hooded sweatshirts. I'm PROUDLY wearing my hood draw string right now. Of course, I did pass my drawstring safety course and registered each of my sweatshirts...

    I'm jealous here we have to apply for a permit ,then we have to justify why we need a hoodie with a string,then we have to make sure when we get our permit that when our hoodie isn't being used we put hoodie safetys on the strings so they cannot be encircled or tied

    That's sad, and I am not making fun of the loss. How many kids you guess got killed jumping off playground equipment not wearing a hoodie? What childhood activity can't kill given the right chain of events? Where do you draw the line?

    I'll bet ya 10-1 there are more people strangled by power car windows but they haven't been banned.I'm not saying that to belittle any loss of life but some of the safety regulations are absurd.maybe on kids hoodies they need to replace strings with velcro closures

    The debate about where kid's play is irrelevant, they are getting cancer and rotting their eyeballs with the xbox360 (yeah I play some games, but when I was younger I did a lot more outdoor activities than kids do these days).

    How about parental supervision of the kid's to ensure their safety?

    Now there's a novel idea, unfortunely it doesn't seem to occur to enough parents.
    If it did there would be no reason for product disclaimers to protect the stupid from themselves

    Now stop using common sense, this is a discussion of the government telling us what we can and can't wear. Common sense has no place here.

    I agree it is always tragic when a child dies, and some legislation was good (lead based paint, asbestos, flame retardant clothing) but there has to be a point at which we know that a string around a kid's neck on a playground can be dangerous and take initiative to watch them or remove it ourselves.

    Product Safety is one of my specialties. I am not saying all hood strings should be banned, but on younger children that do not have sense they should be using more elastic, velcro or breakaway strings or no strings. Many children have hanged themselves on window curtain strings as well. They also have tightened design standards for playground equipment where loose or exposed fasteners are not allowed.

    It is an extremely traumatic event when I child is killed when doing what comes naturally, playing at a playground. CPSC has instituted warnings to parents and manufacturers should be aware. A playground should be safe for kids to play without fear of injury from the equipment.

    This is not an adult that spilled coffee on herself, but 5-10 year olds that are getting hanged by their clothing.
    I was adding information to the discussion and trying to inform.
