    1. Thanks so much for posting this. We have that teether and thankfully, we can get it replaced for free now.

      Thanks for posting this. My SIL has the pack and play.


    3. Lead paint in children’s sunglasses? This is getting ridiculous, it makes me really angry. People should have some form of insurance that their kids’ toys are free from this kind of thing, but until that day at least there are websites devoted to getting the word out. Thanks for the thread!
