Dora, Deigo, Elmo -Get the lead out!

Now Mattel/Fisher Price has problems with lead paint toys and has issued a MAJOR recall. When is this madness going to end? China seems to want to poison everyone with lead these days. Why should you care what baby is gnawing on? Because lead ingestion can lead to these problems:
  • nervous system damage
  • hearing loss
  • stunted growth
  • reduced IQ
  • developmental delays
  • damage to kidneys
Also, another helpful link is the recall on Thomas & Friends stuff.
Personally, I am now going to test everything myself with at an at home test kit. You can get them at almost any hardware store.
