    Thanks for this list, it just keeps going…and going… We’ve been lucky in that none of the recalls have affected us (yet) but it is just crazy! If I was a parent who had a lot of these traditional types of toys I think I’d panic and throw everything away.

    We escaped this one, but I’m really thinking hard about what we want to get for CJ’s Christmas this year in light of all the recalls. Did you see the news story about the heads of the CPSC being wined and dined by the toy manufacturers? It really makes me want to avoid the big name companies altogether.
