Why do kids stick things in their nose?

My son put a lego up his nose recently and it meant a trip to the ER. I mentioned it at work and it opened the door for several stories from others about how their kids stuck items into their noses. It ranged from Polly Pocket shoes to insulation. I’m just wondering- why oh why do kids – mainly boys – seem to do this?



  1. My husband stuck a nut…the type you use with a bolt…up his nose when he was six. Old enough to know better! lol

  2. Why wud u be “proud” of ur son?? Not sending out the best signals there are u ?

  3. When I was little I got some M&Ms stuck in there. I don’t remember why I did it.
