What are the chances that this toy will splinter or crack or break.....I mean with the temp play it's possible right?

I don't have the link handy right now, but search the forum for ToyTimeTim doing his borosilicate glass tests (there are two, one for temp and one for dropping). You'll be impressed!

AskEden has the links (Thank you) to my video's. While that is not a absolute NO it will not break, it does mean that care should always be used. Small cracks that can not be seen could still cause it to break with temperature changes. It is best to slowly warm or cool glass toys and avoid drastic temperature like using a microwave or ice box. Also, inspect the toy carefully before each use.

As always test on your inner wrist before inserting it into you body.

Those were awesome videos. I've actually thought about doing the freezer to hot water test you did in the second video.
Thanks Tim!

Most glass failure is over large temperature swings ( well over 100 degrees, usually much more). Room temperature (68F) to warm (105F) is less than 40F, and cool to body temperature is still in the ~50F range.

Borosilicate is chosen because of its resistance to temperature swings. Remember chem lab and melting tubes / fire polishing chipped test tubes with no problems? That's borosilicate.
