    I would get a bottle of water and just wash it off and hand it back. DP wouldn't even consider giving it back and would bin it immediately.

    This actually made me giggle. Our kids would get along well.

    I'd chuck it unless I could at least give it a quick rinse.

    I would rinse it off with water and then give it back. If it was anything else I wouldn't bother but lollipops attract dirt, hair and who knows what else!!

    I have absolutely no worries about letting my kids eat stuff they have dropped. I a believe it is good for their immune systems. There is a lot of evidence coming out that Anaphalaxis is on the rise because we are living "too clean".

    It woulnd't worry me at all.

    There is no opportunity to buy a replacement lollipop and he would not have accepted an alternative.

    What would you do?

    Eat it! I reckon a five year old's immunity should be up for it!
