Remember the special Toad train we received to make us so happy that we would forget they sold us trains coated in lead paint? That train has been recalled because it contains lead paint. Hmm..Dear Parent, so sorry...safety is our number one concern...trust us...we care...here's a free train for your trouble. Oops, that one has lead too.
Of course, I gave this train to my children because I thought it had to be safe-they couldn't be that dimwitted not to test this train before mailing it. Apparently they are quite dumb (and so am I), or the company is in such chaos no one knows what they are doing. I have read the reports that state it takes a large quantity to cause problems, but the fact is, there should be no lead in them. I do not want to mail another train back, I want to set this one on fire. Sir Topham Hatt will be quite cross when he learns there will be no new Thomas Trains under our tree this year.
