    Thomas the Train recalls

    My girlfriend in OK just sent this to me, so I thought I would share it with you all. Luckily Braydons train isn't on this list.

    I just saw this on the news...luckily all Bean's Thomas trains are the metal ones. We do have one wooden one but it is Thomas. He loves to go play with the wooden ones at Barnes and Noble, but since they are more than 10 bucks we never have purchased any.

    I saw that post on DST and I am really worried , cause we have lots of the wooden ones! Strangly enough there is no recall here in Australia and I am pretty sure ours are manufactured in China too. I send an email to their CS here in Australia - oh, their mail is just coming in, hang on....

    Well, it is an international recall - dang, I have to remove a lot of our toys... :whatchuta They ask to send them in and you do get replacements.

    My DS is not playing with it at the moment and I will watch him that he is not doing it and as soon as he is taking his nap I will remove the specific trains and signs. He will be very upset if he sees me removing them *sigh*

    I should go check, thankfully we mainly have metal ones, but we do have a few wood ones.
