That’s a big name for these cute little tortuguitas that are a total choking hazard. The little legs break off easy and the head is hanging by a string. Not to mention how painful it was if you got your finger caught under the turtle’s head.

You made a ruckus and almost plucked an eye out with these things.
Why is this a toy? This should be sold as a fucking weapon! Haha but its one of those things where you get hit, cry for a cool hour or two, then try to do it again hoping the outcome will be different when we know damn right its going to hit us again ??? #mexicantoys
