As you may recall, we reported on Mattel’s recall of thousands of toys made in China after discovering high levels of lead in the paint. Now according to this article on MSNBC it’s happening again! 16,000 toys recalled! I am starting to wonder whether these toy companies are taking the responsibility of quality testing imported products BEFORE allowing them to be shipped out to consumers and retail outlets? My mamma used to say an ounce of prevention beats a pound of regret. Where is the ownership? Where is the customer loyalty? Concern for the safety of children??? How do these products make it to store shelves or even into kids’ mouths before anyone knows something is wrong???  Wonder what Geoffrey thinks about that?!

Are your kids’ toys safe?

Bob appears as a construction contractor with his colleague Wendy, various neighbours and friends, and their gang of clay work-vehicles and equipment. Bob the builder on setThe show is broadcast in many countries, but originates from the UK. Bob the builder is not educational but very interesting. Watching bob the builder taught me that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Most of the children I know love to watch the show, and even some of my friends today still enjoy the show. believe it or not, bob the builder is quite funny to young teens. Most of us find it amusing to watch clay figures running around trying to fix broken bridges, buildings, and anything else that can possibly be broken in a town of clay. I honestly give this television show a thumbs up.You can watch this show on Nickelodeon during the morning children’s television hour. “Bob the builder, can we fix it?! Bob the builder, yes we can!”
