Weekly Lead Paint Post

By , November 7, 2007 8:38 pm

Unfortunately this lead paint post has become a weekly event. But here are some new toys that are affected by the recall. A few are nice wooden “unplugged toys” that I would actually have bought (but fortunately didn’t). Four are made by Schylling, a brand I really like. How sad.

I frantically called my bro-in-law and he’d already heard the news yesterday because he interrupted my crazed call to say, “Wait a minute… Honey, take that Aqua Dot out of your mouth… Now, what did you need, Wishy?”.. tee hee! All is well at our house, but, sheesh, can’t cousins even do crafts together these days without fears of lead or date-rape-drug exposure???
