Our Children are Toy Testers

Did you know that our children are toy testers? Yes, the toys come out of the factories, into the stores and into our homes before they are tested for safety (this includes the presence of lead). I don’t know about you, but I am willing to pay more money for toys (indeed, they are pretty cheap nowadays) for them to be tested BEFORE they reach my home. Recently, in light of the Walmart lead in the bibs recall, I purchased a few at home lead test kits. Thirty seconds and then a result. How difficult can that be for our government to manage? If you are a parent, and you are not getting the Consumer Product Safety Commission emails about the recalls, you should. (www.cpsc.gov) I do, and almost every week something from China is being recalled for lead. With the deaths and severe medical injuries from Rose Art’s Magnetix, I have had enough. No one needs to die because he or she played with a toy.
