Not a Toy

Any toy can become a serious hobby when there is a community of collectors collecting them. No matter if the toy is originally meant for children or not, the thing that will make it really sell in the market imo would be the existence of collectors or players.
Anyway, im not gonna talk about such serious topic like how worth is your collection or what..but instead a more trivial thing i've just thought about as i browse through my collection today.
It is about the target age that the stuff originally meant for.
i notice that i have model cars that have the notice of 3+,8+ and so on..
so which one in my collection is the most "for adult" only? lets find out..LOL :P

with the least detailed and less parts, hotwheels, mbx and tomica regular is for 3+ and above..don't get tempted by the sad face ur child below 3 gave you.. ^^

this is from 1/72 real-x says taishou nenrei 6 sai ijou which means target age 6 years or older..heh

8+ for hot wheels garage/delivery series, Jada and maisto

14+ for kyosho 1/64, autoart 1/43 and tomica limited..since the difference in material between TL and its regular tomica is just the rubber i guess rubber tires are really not for kids..haha

this one is from aoshima 1/64..i think it is too ambitious for them to put 15+ because kyosho 1/64 has more small parts than them..heh

and the winner is..or should i say, the model that should be kept farthest away from ur children is this Ebbro 1/43..only show this to your children when they are 16+ ok?? hahah

As funny and nonsense this post is about, wonder what is the most dangerous for kids item you guys collect at home?! ^^;
