The class-action lawsuit against the maker of Thomas & Friends wooden railway toys is the first step towards a safer world for our babies and children. However parents should beware: according to this article at About.com, many recalled toys are still being sold in some locations. Many of these toys are being sold at a fraction of their original cost, therefore targeting the poorer families who may not have access to the lastest news about toys.
The bottom line: research unfamiliar or new toys before you buy them. This is the only way to safeguard against poisonous toys. “Poisonous toys” – it’s a shame we even have to use such a phrase.
