It’s true that the fireworks the Children Brand children are playing with look like sparklers. But there still seems to be a bit of a discrepancy between what the wording on the label says (Do not hold in hand after lighting) and what the picture is suggesting. I suppose that if you are a Children Brand child and live inside the label then there is really no way you can read what is written on the outside of the label. I sometimes wonder whether I too have instructions which I can’t read just out of sight beneath the floor.
