I’m Dreaming of a Safe Christmas

Gulp; only 132 shopping days left until Christmas and it would be nice not to get killed this year…literally. Right on the cusp of the shopping season, China-made toys are being recalled at an alarming rate. RC2, Hasbro, Fisher-Price, and Mattel are raising red flags about toys manufactured in red China.

Apparently, our kids aren’t the only ones affected by these toy recalls. Being the president of a toy manufacturer can also be fatal. Cheung Shu-hung, co-owner of Lee Der Industrial Co. hanged himself in the wake of the Fisher-Price recall. Even more unbelievable, the Associated Press is quoted as saying, “it is common for disgraced officials to commit suicide in China.” Really? Really! That’s funny because most of today’s toys are a disgrace to the imagination of children. Merry Christmas.
