alysmommy ~ Toys r us is lucky that you didnt sue them! I cannot believe they would not take it back when it is their own stores brand! Here is the link to the unpainted train: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=2985592 According to the info, the wood has received the Forest Stewardship Council seal of certification. It is made in China, but since my main concern w/ China is lead, I feel okay about this product since in is decorated by burning the wood, not painting it. I am not thrilled that the new eco line is produced in China, but one step at a time I suppose :~
I was furious with them when they wouldn't take the train! I meant to report it to the CPSC, but never got to it and DH eventually threw it away.
That's not all either. I had another Imaginarium toy that didn't manage to get ripped open so I wanted to return it too and it was bought by the same person so I didn't have the receipt. A week later, that toy was recalled! I was so glad I didn't let DS play with it. And I couldn't believe they wouldn't take back their own brand. I know it's their policy now to only take returns with a receipt, but it's their brand!! WM isn't going to let me return it there.
