Enough is enough

More toy recalls!!!!

In response to my frustration and accompanying outburst that this Christmas there will be no toys from China allowed in this house, The Professor asked in a panicked voice, "Do you know where Lego's come from?"

Poor kid... should I put him out of his misery?

P.S. If you are looking for toys still made in the USA check out this website.


  1. In Korea, they (can you believe?) import kimchee from China. A couple of years ago, it was discovered that there were parasites and bugs in the kimchee from China! Yuck!! So, when my mom and dad went for a visit, they avoided all kimchee (at restaurants and such) except when homemade by relatives.

  2. Thanks for the US toys link. While we buy very few toys, because the boys have outgrown them, of course, we did have some darn Polly Pockets. Could they really cause lead poisoning? I guess it's not worth the risk.

    I'll go back to my old standby -- books!

  3. From what I understand, the problem with Polly Pockets has nothing to do with lead paint. It had to do with the little magnetic pieces found in them that can be dislodged. If a baby/child were to swallow more than one, they could stick together in the bowels and cause an obstruction which could lead to death.

  4. Thank goodness Legos are safe or we'd have anarchy here ;)

    I understand your POV though and am with you all the way!!

  5. I'm definitely with you on this, Matilda. Thanks for the linnk!
