I was just doing search for what happens when a toddler eats nerf foam... like the nerf dart? (My elder son has the nerf dart gun and lots of darts that are normally put out of reach in the garage and he left one inside for my 2.5yo DS to find). I can't find a thing anything on the 'net after doing many searches with different keywords.
This happened Tuesday night. He brought me the head to the dart while playing in the same room with me. (I didn't see the dart or where on earth he found it.) So, about 2" of the dart where missing and I could see teeth marks on the head. At first, I thought he must have torn it off or ripped it off. However, careful tearing apart of the room and adjoining area have turned up no remainders. So, I'm left to assume he ate it.
He pooped yesterday, but as far as I could see, no dart material. No poopie today. He does sometimes skip a day with BM's. But considering what he may have done, I'm getting concerned.
Going back to my question, I'm puzzled why I couldn't find a thing (not even on Hasbro's site) about the safety (or lack thereof) of eating Nerf. If anyone knows anything about this stuff and whether I should cart my child off to the Doc or hospital, please let me know? Thanks!!
