Among all the mega zillion toys recalled for lead paint. They have recalled the toy named toy of the year. Here is a link to the page from the Product Safety commission .Spin Master Recalls Aqua Dots – Children Became Unconscious After Swallowing Beads
If ingested (apparantly in quantity) the chemical makeup of the beads becomes similar to a date rape drug Thye have been recalled here and in Austrailia. I can understand small ones (under 4) getting into them and eating them but a 10 yr old girl from Austrailia has also been hospitalized. ????
Guess I have a dilemma since Santa was bringing Meghyn a set for Xmas. Not worried that she will put them in her mouth since I will be supervising her when she plays with them(I have no desire to pick them up from all over the floor) but more for the fact that I will be stuck with a 15$ toy that I cant buy refills for. Spin Master says that they will replace it with a toy of equal value or replacement beads. (guess they will be re doing the formula) Well I will have to give them a call tomorrow I suppose...sigh...I just hope they dont want the reciept cause I bought the darn things back in August. (ok, I start shopping early... lol)
