My kids are getting past the toy stage a bit but what a scary thing not knowing what is safe for our kids to play with anymore. How do you stop a child from putting things in their mouths. That is how they learn at infants.
My daughter was a big fan of polly pockets and I know those magnets toys were a pain. The magnets were always coming loose from toy.
Poor Mattel. I guess they are going to have to rely on domestic help instead of cheap labour to make their toys.

Erin, I thought exactly the same thing. I was actually offended by the food/poop stuff when dd got it for Christmas. We just have a Barbie with a dog.
Crazy toy.

We have the pooping puppy too. I sent off for the mailer to return our scooper to them for a replacement. According to the recall notice though, the poop is just metal pellets - not magnets. Although I do think they look disturbingly similar to Tic Tacs.
