Fischer-Price Toys, Pixar Cars Sarge with Lead Paint Hazard Recalled; Other Mattel Products with Magnet Hazard Products Recalled.
The kids, for a change, were quiet. Maybe because they saw toys in front of them. But those are toys that should not be played with, according to the news. These are toys with lead paint hazard and with very small magnets that can be swallowed by children. These are toys that did not pass the quality inspection. I had to explain to the kids what the show was about -- that they are warning the people that those toys are not suitable for kids. That they are dangerous because of the strong paint smell and the small pieces that could be swallowed or inhaled.
MC immediately corrected me,' mama, we dont have small pieces from our Barbies. Remember, you always taken them away? You only give us the Barbies. '
Oh, yeah. Smart girl, I usually do that. I make sure that I separate the small stuffs first, before giving the toys to the kids. Explaining to them that these things are too small, and could be misplaced or lost easily. MC is aware of this, too. Although I sometimes I allow her to play with the small things, she gives them back to me afterwards. She doesnt want IC to play with them, knowing that her little sister is still too small for those things.
Plus, we have Polly Pocket toys (those given as gifts) that are still in their original packages. I always think they are too small for their small hands. I guess, my decision was right.
After watching the show, I marched the kids to their play corners. I gave them a big basket to throw in toys that have too strong paint smell; while I surfed the internet for the whole list of the recalled products and here are they:
