    I was thinking of buying a really popular eliquid recently. I always keep my eliquids out of reach from my kids, but I just couldn't bring myself to buy this particular eliquid because of the packaging and the thought that it just looked too much like something kids would mistake for candy. Anyway this is the eliquid:

    I hate all the media reports that say eliquid flavours are attracting kids when vendors never sell to under 18s, but I think packaging like this isn't helping either.

    There's one out there that comes in a little bear shaped bottle like the honey.
    Another has lollipops on the labels.

    They are def not helping the perception any

    No, they definitely aren't helping the cause. I think I would pull the label off that or cover it with plain paper if I had small children.

    I go out of my way to not buy from vendors/juice sellers who have "kiddy" bottle or designs. It only hurts us.

    I agree. When we are hearing almost every day in media reports that ecig companies are marketing to attract children, this labeling is irresponsible. Certainly not helping the cause.

    Hadn't seen this, glad you posted it. You would think that with pending regulations juice companies would be more responsible with their labeling. I can just see some politician on the news waving this bottle around, great ammunition for the ANTZ community....:facepalm:

    I think all juice bottles should have naked people on them so there is no mistaking it has adult content.

    Don't deprive yourself of something you may really enjoy because of public views you may or may not agree with, buy it, put it in a plastic bottle and label it however you like. Mr. Cookie is quite good, I've got a friend who goes through a bottle of it a week and I must admit that until I read this thread I never once perceived the art work on the bottle to be marketed towards minors in any way.

    YOUR perception is what matters here, don't let the public perception run yours over.

    Before the lawyers took over our republic, we had some very effective and low cost methods of handling these things.

    Here's a blast from the past from my earliest childhood days...

    I agree this really does not help with public perception. Theres got to be better ways of branding your e liquid than making it look like something you would get on a kids sweet wrapper.

    We are all "concerned for our cause"...but hear me out...

    I've been thinking on this all afternoon and finally think I know what is bothering me...

    ...isn't this a bit like the flavor deal ?


    Adults can't like "cute" either ?

    Exactly what I thought Classwife!

    Adults like candy.
    Adults like cookies.
    Adults like bright colors.
    Adults like cartoons.

    My "baby" has been an adult for many years now. I tire of having to give up my adult rights because other people won't parent their children.

    And as far as a politician holding the bottle for a press opp - well, if it isn't this, it will be something. They don't care about children, that's just a convenient excuse.

    I honestly don't care what the label looks like as long as the jooz is good & as a responsible adult I wouldn't have my jooz where kids could get to it anyway.
    I think people are forgetting that many companies were using *cute* labels long before vaping grew in popularity & folks started talking regs.

    i see nothing wrong with labeling and pictures of it. I mean, its not like they are labeling it as "childrens extremely tasty snack candy for children" or anything, its just pictures and colors, what deems us the right to say what is attractive to only children and not adults? I agree that this is no different than the whole "candy/sweet type flavoring aimed at children" type deal they are trying to say to get rid of flavored eliquid.

    This is the thought process that is going to make e juice cost $12 per ml.

    I sincerely hope y'all get what you're asking for.

    Put your e juice OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

    OR

    JUST NO LONGER BUY FROM THAT VENDOR AND TELL HIM WHY.

    Please DON'T invite the .gov in to eff things up for me.

    Thank you classwife. You put into words exactly what I was thinking but didn't want to come across as argumentative.

    I'd sooner shame the company over the typography and general graphic design fail. Why must vape logos look like they were doodled in the notebooks of angsty teens, and the graphics look like someone set their grandmas up with a clipart gallery and MS Word? I know plenty of freelance designers that would probably just do the work for portfolio exposure.
