Damn Toy Makers

In the latest round of toy recalls is Aquadots. This was a highly coveted item for my daughter and I purchased it a few weeks ago to make sure we had it before the huge holiday rush.

Now it is going back to the store and I will have to break the news that this is not an option.

I am thinking the fact that it turns into the equivalent drug reaction of a date rpe drug is not a good thing for a 5 year old.

What I would really like to know is how do these things happen? And what are we doing about it?

Ugh. Maggie has been asking for these!!
from what I heard on the news this afternoon, the makers are going to re-coat all of the "dots" with a foul-tasting substance so kids won't *want* to put them in their mouths.

Pretty soon there won't be ANYTHING to play with. Kids will have to resort to ::gasp:: using their imaginations & playing with sharp sticks and riding their bikes like we did.

I can't believe all of these recent toy recalls! Makes me scared to buy anything for the kids.

BTW, I appreciate you always reading and leaving comments on my blog. I was going to send you an e-mail, but I don't have your address anymore. Please send me an e-mail to sometime. Take care!
