Why? Just why?

If the daycare can’t afford or doesn’t want to provide proper toys, I wouldn’t hesitate to remove my child.

LoveAndLaughter:  Umm, that is a terrible idea! It conditions babies to associate pill bottles with toys, and that is not OK. Oh, look, mom and dad have a whole cabinet full of rattles!

Whoever thought of this is a moron.

It would make me raise an eyebrow. It seems sketchy to me.

As long as they were cleaned, I don’t really see a problem with it. They’re just containers.

I hope that’s the cheapest daycare ever.

maybe if they wrapped them in fabric, so the container couldn’t be seen would be fine…but other then that, it’s weird.

I have so many empty pill bottles just sitting around, I guess I’ll make rattles for babies – said no one, ever.

LoveAndLaughter:  potential choking hazard if the lid ever came unscrewed I see soooo many potential tort suits being brought up but that’s because I am a la student I personally would never leave my child in such a daycare Because to repurpose a pill bottle as a rattle is so wrong in so many ways

No no no. You are teaching them that pills= something fun to play with. Terrible idea.

Oh, I was thinking you meant just for your house/your family personally and I as gonna say, “What’s wrong with that?”

But…a daycare? No. If they can’t afford real toys, they are probably really shady.
