Not sure where to post this, but can't find anything by Googling it. Anyone know if this is dangerous? He probably didn't have much because it was so disgusting. He's coughing a lot now and is drinking water. I can't find a brand name, but it's not normal bubble mixture.

He's five FFS! He said it was an accident and the liquid 'fell' into his mouth hmm.

Well, have finally found it on the internet and it is non-toxic but has a 'bittering' agent to make it taste awful.

He seems fine now and wants his dinner.

Glad he seems OK. We got those 'touchable' bubbles in a party bag recently. They look fab until you realise they're a weird plasticky substance that leaves bits everywhere and sticks in your hair/carpet etc.

I hope you read him the riot act about things 'falling into his mouth'... they can be so bloody stupid can't they!?!

I'm glad it's non toxic, it sounds ghastly!

MrsKitty - yes, he had bits stuck all over his hair afterwards.

ChippingIn - he said his body "went out of his control" hmm. I was so scared that I was really quite angry with him, so I don't think he'll be doing that again.

He is fine today, apart from the bubbles floating out of his ears and nostrils wink.
