These recalls have been really upsetting to me. Especially the Thomas Train recalls, because I guess I had this idea that if a toy was made of wood it was safer/better than others.
Today I gathered all of the Thomas trains, die-cast cars/trains/etc, and took them out of the house. I just feel like I don't know what is safe and what is not. I'm not sure if I'm going to throw them away yet or not. But I just can't take a chance with a 2 yr old and a 10 month old who put toys in their mouths all the time. I have started questioning every toy we have. I wish there was a good way to find out if they are actually safe and lead-free.
I couldn't believe how many things we have that are made in China... seriously...Is EVERYTHING made in China?? I'm not blaming this on China though... really the accountability should lie with the toy companies that only care about increasing profits and not about our children....
Okay... I'll get off my soap box now. It's just such a bummer.
