Bad campaign. Gives absolutely no reason to check if my kids are color blind.

The fact that they might be colour blind is probably reason enough, but I don't know how you do things, so do what you feel. They're your kids after all.

Doin' it for the points

Actually does, imagine how devastated your little mikey would be if all his cretin friends scoffed and laughed at him for arguing with them that hermit is in actual fact blue and not green... These aren't great, but they are bang on...

Add insult to injury then burn the candle at both ends.

A colorblind person rarely argues about colors.

toys are not that dramatic and important.
Traffic lights would be more dramatic when
but in a dramatic context of a heavy truck speeding
on the crossroads.

As a father of two kids, the issue is compelling, but agree that using toys would not trigger me to schedule a check-up of their eyesights.

No, traffic light doesn’t work.

A colorblind person will always recognize the red light as 'red' whatever the color he sees instead of red. Simply because since he was born he learnt that this is what ‘red’ looks like.

It's not that simple.

Can you guarantee that what you see as 'green' is exactly what others see as 'green' without any difference?

You might be colorblind without to know!

The best way to leave an impact on parents is to show them how ugly the world could be in their children’s eyes.
