Thomas Trains Recalled
Wow, sometimes seemingly benign things can be quite dangerous. Two different urbanMamas have notified us about a Thomas train recall for the trains being painted with lead paint. There's a lot of description referring to the packaging, but our packaging is LONG GONE! So, I guess we'll dig out all the trains and compare them to the pictures on the page.
