  • It’s Recall Time Again


    Well, I’ve definitely reached the point of not allowing Tyler to put anything painted in his mouth. There were seven recalls in the CPSC email I got today, so I’m just going to post a picture and link to the press release, which will tell you what to do if you happen to own any of the following cursed toys:

    1. KB Toys Recalls Wooden Toys Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard

    2. Kids II Recalls Baby Einstein Color Blocks Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard

    3. Eveready Battery Co. Recalls Toy Flashlights Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard

    4. Dollar General Recalls Tumblers Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard

    5. CKI Recalls Children’s Decorating Sets Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard; Sold Exclusively at Toys “R” Us

    6. Key Chains Recalled by Dollar General Due to Risk of Lead Exposure

    7. Antioch Publishing Recalls Bookmarks and Journals Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard


    1. Awesome. We’ve had those Baby Einstein blocks since our 4 year old was a baby. Now they’re in our 2 year old’s room. I better go check to see if it’s the correct batch. Or it’s yet another box of recalled items I’ll be shipping back to companies. That marks the 4th package I’ll be sending out this year…
