Fisher-Price Recalled Toys

I had one. Did you?
Note to self: print list for Grandma so she won't buy these at yard sales.

More lead from China. Would I be totally paranoid if I got rid of all our Fisher Price baby toys?

Are you kidding? ALL those toys are on recall? Good grief - fortunately, I did not see anything there that we have...but, how is one to know what is safe for her little ones to play with anymore?

Maybe we should go back to cornhusk dolls and sticks and rocks!?

Wow, it's certainly motivation to closely look for where the toy was made!

Update:

It is good to call ... we had one of the products (the J7983 Sesame Street Tub Pots & Pans) but it was copyrighted 2000 and we probably got it in 2002 or 2003. I called the company and they said it was primarily products from this year (so ours was fine), but check if you are not sure.

I am getting to the point where I hesitate to buy ANYTHING from China. Sigh...this is getting to be a real chore, too. Every product on a recent shopping trip was scrutinized, and sometimes it's nearly impossible to find a particular product made anywhere else BUT China!!

I was secretly hoping that our Dora House was one of the recalled ones because I would love to wrench that monstrosity out of the hands of my children and exchange it for something else (much smaller). I wondering if I can use all of this made in China controversy to convince the relative to give decent gifts this Christmas.

We had one, but it was purchased prior to May of 2007 so it was safe. Only products purchased after May 1, 2007 are affected. Makes me feel good about not buying many "new" toys for the kids. They like the used ones better anyway.

I know I'm behind (I'm outta state for a month!), but I'm not sure why we should trust that *all* the other toys are just fine. I try my hardest to buy wooden things, Melissa & Doug are not expensive on clearance at Marshall's & TJ Maxx

Why can we no longer buy things that are made in America? I think this is an outrage and manufacturers should production of there products back home. Our economy and our consumers might benefit.
