    As always, I highly recommend signing up for recall notifications by email at the CPSC web site.


    1. Yeah I saw this one earlier and sadly we have the starter set for those magnetix ones. I always was nervous with magnets, but these are sooo huge I figured they were fine. Not sure why they’re recalling ALL of them though, and not just the latest line with the tiny parts. And my kids were literally playing with them today. Never ends, does it?

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      Obviously the potential health and safety problems are the worst thing about all these recalls, but a close second is having to take away toys that they like. I hope your kids understood!
