since some of us do not wander to the CB, I figured I would post this here. This is the latest list of toys being recalled due to the China lead paint fiasco.
It also lists their other recalls.

it had to have been bad to kill himself because it causes so much shame for his family. They are all about honor and everything. I feel so sorry for his family.

My 4 yr olds beloved Sarge car was on there. He got a whole bunch of Cars cars for his birthday, so for now I have them all bagged up incase the rest are bad as well. They were all bought together.

I have a bunch of thomas the tank trains, and a bunch of the Diego as well.

He has a Hasbro item about 8 months ago that was recalled and they sent a gift card for him to use on their website. He cried over that one because he didnt understand what a recall was. Now he gets it and he isnt fazed by it.

I am afraid to buy anything at all for Christmas (I start early) because it will all be recalled anyways.
