RECALL FOR LEAD PAINT

So I'm sure many of you have read about the massive recall of Fisher Price toys. It is a nationwide recall - because these toys have lead paint on them. When I first heard about it, I didn't really worry too much. Until I saw that over 900,000 toys were being recalled. When I scanned the list, my heart dropped. My children own almost ALL of the Dora the Explorer products being recalled. Some of the figures which Kierra puts in her mouth.

I'm now in seek and remove mode. Once I do that, I'll re-check all the serial numbers (I'm sure they are the ones though), and do what I have to to get my money back. This is complete bullshit though. I'm also calling our pediatrician to make sure that the girls don't need blood tests to check for lead poisoning.

Please look at this list and check all your toys that you think could be subject to this recall.

I saw on Regis and Kelly it's only toys bought from April to July. So I'm ok. We haven't been able to get new toys in that frame.

YOu can go to their website, and file a claim. They'll send you shipping labels so you can send the affected merchandise back.

Then they send you some vouchers for the equivalent prices of the items you returned, to be spent on other toys (of course their brand).

I mean seriously, do they NOT check this stuff before they just put it out there for innocent children to play with. You'd think they would have to be more careful than they are.

Good Luck and keep us upated!
