I would say definitely not. I have several, and LOVE them!
I'm curious to know why you're concerned?
Because it's, well GLASS, and glass is generally considered fragile? No worries, all the toys I've seen made of glass, is made from the same type of glass that your Pyrex cook/bakeware is made from, so it's very sturdy, strong, and able to withstand many various temps, and pressure.
Are you concerned with the colors? Most (but not all) toys, like this Violet Wonder, are colored thru out the glass, so it's not painted on, so it won't leak, or bleed anywhere. Some do have paint on the outside, which has had some debate to it. But generally, and in my experience, all that stands up rather well.
And, yes, you CAN boil them, use a 50/50 bleach/water solution on them, and/or put them in the dishwasher to wash. You can also freeze them for that added sensation/pleasure.
