DID YOU HEAR ABOUT AQUADOTS????-- DATE RAPE????? adult content

They have been found to have the same effect as the DATE RAPE DRUG!!
When children put them in their mouths or ate them it had the effects of the date rape drug and even caused children to go into comas. Look it up on youtube.com aqua dots recall

  • aqua dots are still for sale and still advertised. I just seen the ad for them this week. Although they are NO longer called aqua dots. The NEW name for the product is pixos. You can buy pixos today @ Target! (For example) Pixos ARE Aqua Dots! The wikipedia article on Bindeez (what Aqua Dots were called in Australia) even explains how the product just got a new name and is "safer". In North America, the beads, previously marketed as "Aquadots" were remarketed as Pixos and marketed as "Safety Tested" in the television commercial as the commercial began hitting the airways in early July. However, the background music is exactly the same. In June 2009, "Chixos" featuring dolls began marketing more towards girls. They also changed the name of the new improved product in Australia to distant themselves from the recall.

  • Anything you find on the market are going to be post-recall and not the same thing. This is old information.
