Mattel/Fisher-Price toy recall

Many of you emailed me with news of the massive Fisher-Price toy recall currently underway -- thank you. In general, I don't post recall notices here; the CPSC covers this territory well, even offering an RSS feed of recall notices for toys and children's products. But I feel like this is just too huge not to mention.

Check the Mattel website for a full list of recalled toys. Elmo and Dora have been hit pretty hard.

I didn't know CPSC had a live feed, thanks for the link!

All of Alex's toys are Elmo, so I was on the website, looking like a crazy person for anything she has. Luckily, it looks like it is only stuff sold in stores from May 2007 on.


As I wrote in my own post on the subject (http://www.mombian.com/2007/08/02/sesame-street-dora-toys-and-more-recalled-for-excessive-lead/), I have to wonder if all these recalls (vid. the Thomas the Tank Engine recall two months ago) will spur a retro movement towards homemade toys. Parent Hacks could be on the leading edge here....

Thanks a ton! I'll post this, too and link back here. Great hacks this week, BTW!
