  • Baby-Related News: Thomas Toys Recalled & New Use for Baby Monitor

    • Wooden Thomas & Friends toys have been recalled for lead poisoning. See the official recall here. As The Consumerist points out, most of the product recalls in the U.S. are of items manufactured in China. I’m thinking it might be better policy at this point to avoid buying toys made there (not sure if that’s possible, but I’m definitely going to try).
    • A video baby monitor picked up a feed from the shuttle Atlantis (and has apparently continued to show the space shuttle instead of the baby). Too bad the article doesn’t identify the monitor, although I’m not sure if this actually constitutes good press.
