Hiya everyone I was surfing and i found that Fisher Price is recalling alot of its toys,,here is what i found.. Toy-maker Fisher-Price is recalling 83 types of toys — including the popular Big Bird, Elmo, Dora and Diego characters — because their paint contains excessive amounts of lead. The worldwide recall being announced Thursday involves 967,000 plastic preschool toys made by a Chinese vendor and sold in the United States between May and August. It is the latest in a wave of recalls that has heightened global concern about the safety of Chinese-made products. The recall is the first for Fisher-Price Inc. and parent company Mattel Inc. involving lead paint. It is the largest for Mattel since 1998 when Fisher-Price had to yank about 10 million Power Wheels from toy stores. here are the recalled toys for you guys.. 33662 Elmo Light Up Musical Pal 33663 Ernie Light Up Musical Pal 33664 Big Bird Light Up Musical Pal 34658 Elmo Stacking Rings 39038 Elmo Tub Sub 39054 Sesame Street Shape Sorter 87946 Elmo Keyboard 90267 Ernie Splashin’ Fun Trike 90609 Elmo Collectible 90611 Cookie Collectible 90612 Zoe Collectible 90613 Ernie Collectible 90614 Big Bird Collectible 90745 Construction Playset 93068 Elmo Boom Box 93107 Action Fire Engine 93307 Press N Go Elmo 93308 Rev & Go Cookie Monster 93492 Cookie Saxophone 93493 Elmo’s Guitar 93615 Splash Tub Puzzle 93780 Music And Lights Phone B7554 Count To Beat Elmo B7888 Shake, Giggle & Roll B7987 Elmo in the Giggle Box B7989 Silly Parts Talking Elmo B9620 Dora’s Talking House C6908 Dora, Backpack, Perrito Figure Pack C6909 Diego Figure Pack C6910 Swiper Figure Pack C6911 Boots, Tico Figure Pack G3825 Dora Talking Vamonos Van G5112 Sing With Elmo’s Greatest Hits G9717 Giggle Doodler H2943 Grow with Me Elmo Sprinkler H3343 Cousin Daisy H3344 Birthday Dora H5569 Elmo & Pals (Elmo, Cookie, Ernie) H5570 Elmo & Pals (Elmo, Zoe, Big Bird) H4187 Dora Figures in Tube H4628 Water Fun Tote H8236 Dora 3 Pack Figures in Tube H8237 Blue 3 Pack Figures in Tube H8238 Sponge Bob 3 Pack Figures in Tube H9124 Chef Dora H9125 Bedtime Dora H9186 Giggle Grabber Ernie H9188 Giggle Grabber Oscar the Grouch J0338 Diego Talking Field Journal J0343 Go Diego Go Antarctic Rescue J0344 Go Diego Go Deep Sea Rescue J0345 Go Diego Go Mountain Rescue J0346 Go Diego Go Talking Rescue 4 X 4 J5935 Giggle Grabber Soccer Elmo J5936 Giggle Grabber Chef Cookie Monster J6537 Sesame Street Giggle Toolbelt J6762 Queen Mami J6763 Royal Boots and Tico J6765 Prince Diego J7983 Sesame Street Tub Pots & Pans J9518 Sesame Street Giggle Drill J9692 Dora’s Talking Pony Place K0617 Twins Nursery K3414 Diego - Talking Gadget Belt K3571 Go Diego Go Mobile Rescue Unit K3580 Fairytale Adventure Dora K4139 Go Diego Go Dinosaur Rescue K4140 Toucan Motorcycle Rescue L0305 Dora Figure L3194 Surprise Inside Diego Eggs L3215 Sesame Street Elmo Jack-In-The-Box L3488 Sesame Street Birthday Figure Pack L3507 Sesame Street - Super Boom Box L5202 Birthday Dora L5813 Diego Tub Trike L8905 Pablo & Pals M0351 Dora Figures Dora & Kitty M0352 Dora Figures Diego & Bear M0524 Go Diego Go Talking Gadget M0527 Sesame Street Giggle Doodler M0732 Dora’s Talking House M2051 Let’s Go Rescue Center M2052 Fairytale Castle just wanted to let you know..and what are your thoughts? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20079082/ Owners of a recalled toy can exchange it for a voucher for another product of the same value.

Makes you wonder exactly what they are thinking and who they hire for production companies. They all want to outsource their products so that it is cheaper, but then things like this happen. I hope things like this and the like happen more and more so that America and so forth will have the ability to have the jobs which will help the economy.

This recall actually made my husband and I very paranoid. A friend recently gave our son this Cookie Monster toy, and it's not on the list but it's similar to many of the items, and we have it put away for a bit just in case another list comes out or something. It's so horrible that these types of things happen! I mean, especially with reputable brands, you feel pretty secure that your kids are playing with things that are safe, and then all of a sudden find out they aren't! It's terrifying really.
