You may have heard that Fisher Price has announced a recall of millions of its toys. And yes, of course there is at least one such product in our house – the Ocean Wonders Kick and Crawl Aquarium. It’s a cute play set which your baby can use at various stages.
Mikel was gifted with this by one of his godparents and I had wanted to use it on baby-girl-no-name. Actually, according to reports, the only real problem with the recalled toys is the inflatable ball. There have been over 50 incidents in North America of the ball’s valve coming off and 14 reports of the valve being found in a child’s mouth and one incident of a child beginning to choke on the damn valve but no injuries.
Makes me think though… When you finish inflating the ball, you can push the valve in so it doesn’t protrude and in that position it’d be pretty damn hard to rip the valve off since it’s “embedded” in the ball. Oh whatever. The ball’s going in the trash.
