TOYS OF DOOM

August 19, 2007

Stupid Chinese companies and their use of lead paint on the toys I buy for my kids.

Seen below are Dora the Explorer and her cousin Diego, both of which have been recalled. Fantastic.



Since I paid very little for them (I picked them up at a garage sale), I've decided that instead of returning them to the manufacturer, I'm going to bring them to work and add them to my cubicle decorations.

And of course, this topic leads to all sorts of conversations regarding capitalism, outsourcing, minimum wage regulation, social responsibility, and all sorts of other buzzword issues.

This morning my mom called, and I let our oldest answer the phone. She told my mom that China had put poison on her toys and that she couldn't play with them anymore, or they would KILL her. :)
