Fisher Price & Mattel have announced new recalls affecting Geo Trax Locomotive toys, Bongo Band toys and Barbie accessories due to lead paint. Links to recalls as well as a link for getting recalls emailed to you directly and also to petition for safer toys are located in my blog. I also have a list of american made toys. Go <a href="http://journeytocrunchville.wordpress.com/" target="_blank">HERE</a> if inerested.

Wow, it's just constant now, this parade of recalls. When are we as a society of parents going to finally just say NO to low quality merchandise? Why do we have to BUY so much? When will it be enough?<br><br>
Sorry, this is just a sore spot for me!

Oh, ITA. I get so fed up with all the junk my family buys for their children...the kids are practically drowning in toys, they have so much. And my in-laws are FAMOUS for buying cheaper-end toys (and lots of it) from places like Big Lots and TJ Maxx. I wish I knew how to curb their buying.<br><br>
The recalls really concern me. How can all of these defective products get by the quality department?

Yup. Scary, scary scary. THIS is why I sent out an email to all my family saying "nothing else from china!" with a link to oompa toys... All of our plastic junk is now sitting upstairs out of hte way whilst I decide whether to recycle/trash it or sell it or what...
