In this day and age….

…we still have to worry about lead-based paint? On children’s toys? That you can purchase at the store? Today?

Apparently, and sadly, yes.

Fisher-Price just recalled a whole load of toys.

AND, we have the Cookie Monster bath toy. BATH TOY, people! I feel awful, and sick to my stomach, allowing that stupid toy to live in the bath, next to our favorite duckies. With my girls. It has been removed from the premises.

And, I’m reviewing the symptoms for lead poisoning right now.

Check it out and make sure you don’t have any of the offending toys.

    Whew…I think we’re safe. However, how ironic is it that we had Ella’s 6 mos. well-child yesterday and I had to fill out the lead questionnaire. “Has you child played with any lead based toys”. My response in my head was, “No, duh!” Isn’t it scary how we try to do everything we can to keep our little ones safe, and we really don’t know, do we?

    Isn’t it just horrible and unbelievable? And from Fisher Price no less???? We’re still in Florida… but when we get home I have quite a few toys to go through (especially from the recent bday party!)

    Care… did you see that the Diego Talking Field Journal is also on the list? That’s what we got E for xmas, I think. There are a lot of Dora toys on there. Lauren has several of the little figurines. I may have to just throw them out. I’m not worried about Lauren chewing on them, but Will is another story…..

    The school made Lauren go through a lead test in order to sign up for pre-school. Now I know why.
