    Aqua Dots Recall

    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)
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Excuse me while I go eat Cassidy's dots!!!

    Let me know what they said after you talk to them. Cassidy has one but I think she's only played with it twice.

    My boys don't have those but I do have nieces who have the kind you use a hot iron over. Matt still puts everything in his mouth so I won't be getting any of those little bead things for a while, remember this summer's nickel incident?

    Hmmmpppff.... I think they are getting pounded with calls. BUSY BUSY! The site says page cant be displayed. Last nite it said under construction. Come on Spinmaster, if this thing has to go back Santa needs to find something else to give. Poor kid aint getting much as it is (money is going to Disney...lol) She dont need much anyway. I need to purge toys. LOL

    At 20 minutes I gave up. Plus Donnie kept beeping in to tell me he was coming home for lunch. The site is up. Apparantly they have a new formula for the beads cause you can send in the druggie ones and get rehab ones. I cant get the form page to come up tho stil getting a page not found on it.

    Another toy recall - lead paint on Winnie-the-Pooh tops. This one doesn't look to be too large a recall, but some Disney fans are sure to have bought this top.

    Ok, ok I'll tell the truth. I sold them to have money to go to WDW. But I did keep a few to make it a little "Happier" place on Earth.
