Today I stopped by my computer guys house to pick up my computer. He is a friend of a friend, and I have been to his house about 5 times total. When my PA son and I walked in his house he started running around gathering up about 4 stuffed smurf toys that he recently found in the bottom of his daughters closet. He said he had checked the tags and it said they were stuffed with peanut shells.

I thought that it was wonderful that someone who I literally barely know would think to even check the tags of these toys. He put them up in another room, shut the door to the room and washed his hands after he handled the toys. It was actually the first encounter I have had with a toy being stuffed with any kind of peanut or nut shells.

Ethan's Mommy, wow, what a cool guy. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]
We did have that experience four years ago. I was working in an antiques/collectibles warehouse and I didn't even think to check the tag of I think a Mickey Mouse toy I gave my son out of the warehouse (warehouse isn't the right word but I can't think of what is). At any rate, it turned out to be stuffed with walnut shells and my son was quite freaked out about it. We were as well. I think I ended up posting about it, at that time, in a thread I had going about my son's then anxiety re his PA.
But man, what a cool fellow. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]
