Bring you the latest in a series of recent recalls…
The JetMax Wooden Storage rack has been recalled due to entrapment and suffocation hazards to young children. These storage racks were made for children’s bedrooms and were sold in Wal-mart & Ollie’s stores from 2004 through 2007. Around 36,000 of these are being recalled.
If you have one of these products, stop using it and contact JetMax for a repair kit. You can click here for more information and how to contact JetMax.
The latest recall to come about is the Curious George plush birthday doll. Sadly, we have this doll but luckily our son has never played with it. I guess his disinterest has paid off.
There are other Curious George dolls involved in this recall too including the fireman, sweet dreams, and tool time CG dolls. These dolls are being recalled due to the amount of lead in the surface paint on the doll’s face and lead in the construction hats on specific dolls.
If your child has one of these dolls please take it away from them. You can receive a full refund of about $15 by contacting Marvel Toys. Please click here for contact information.
To help you buy safe toys this coming holiday season we have put together a list of helpful links for you to peruse.

All stores that sell Easy Bake Ovens have been told to pull all ovens from the shelves. If your child has a front-loading easy bake oven take it away from them then contact Easy Bake oven at www.easybake.com for a voucher towards another Hasbro product.
