    Oh not this crap again!
    Yes, that's right folks, China's shoddy toy safety measures have struck again and this time it involves that beloved little brown monkey who's always being chased around by "The Man in The Yellow Hat." That's right, it's none other than Curious George.

    Scared the crap out of me, my youngest son has some Curious George toys, luckily they are not the ones included in this particular recall.

    I know how you feel, I can still walk into certain stores and find lead contaminated toys or recalled toys still on the shelves for sale. It pisses me off and I feel like giving the store managers shit about it.

    Heck, just last night I went to my local ToysRus to check G.I.Joes and they still had some recalled "Elite Operations" toyline still on the shelves. Certain toys from the line were recalled earlier this week because the paint used on them were contaminated with dangerously high levels of lead.

    When will corporations understand?
    Ok, if they have to outsource, at least keep an eye on the regulations. It's their name on the label, not the subcontractor's.
    Sad.

    It'll be amazing if China keeps much toy manufacturing after all of these recalls.
