A youngster was playing with a glass-paneled drawing toy filled with aluminum powder.


The toy is designed to enable the child to draw with the powder as it is controlled by magnetized dials. When the youngster in this case inadvertently leaned on the panel, the glass shattered and the ragged shards slashed his forearm. Moreover, some of the aluminum dust became imbedded under his skin, causing blotchy scars. Design negligence was based on the use of glass face panels and the use of aluminum powder.
