And thus signals the end of some of the few places I trust buying toys and clothing items for my son.
it's a really stupid misguided law brought about by people over reacting to lead paint. yes. i get it. lead paint should not be on children's toys. lead is a toxic substance. but the backlash in this country from the cases of lead paint on a handful of toys is absolutely ridiculous. people want the government to legislate common sense and personal accountability. it's infuriating.
i run a small family owned shop. i had a customer ask me if a Christmas ornament had lead in it. a fragile glass Christmas ornament. not intended for children. shouldn't she have been worried about a child cutting themselves on the thing before she worried about a child eating it?
so frustratingly stupid.
the lead paint/toy brouhaha is so minor compared to what our children are supposed to have injected into their bodies at every well baby visit. (eyes rolling to the very back of my head.) sorry i had to go there.
