Remember when a few weeks ago, I called for someone to put up a website that had a list of toys proven to contain no lead?
Well, in spite of my calling of “dibs” on the idea, someone did it. I find it sad that no one in America respects the power of dibs anymore.
The Consumer Action Guide to Toxic Chemicals in Toys, which is available to the public at http://www.healthytoys.org, shows how the commonly purchased children’s products rank in terms of containing lead, cadmium, arsenic and other harmful chemicals. It comes in time for holiday shopping — and amid the slew of recalls.
This is for your information, you parents out there, single or otherwise.
The main problem now is what, exactly, to buy my daughter for Christmas? There’s only so many clothes that I can buy, and books, although great for three-year olds, get a little boring after a while. I’d love some suggestions; feel free to leave some ideas in the comments.
