Parents.com: Toy and Product Recall Finder

Every year, there are a number of toys or products for kids that hit store shelves, but are later found to be dangerous.  No, not because the Batman: Wayne Manor playset cost too much, and not because it hurt when you stepped on the “Bubbles” action figure from PowerPuff Girls — we’re talking about actual danger!  To help protect your family from any kind of harm, Parents.com has launched a “Toy and Product Recall Finder” (http://www.parents.com/product-recalls/) that lists information on which products could be hazardous.  Go check it out — folks, bring your kids; kids bring your folks!

Toys “R” Us Times Square welcomes Ben 10 Alien Force!

Toys "R" Us Times Square

I’ve been to the Toys “R” Us in Times Square a number of times in the past few years, and it’s always a blast.  Now, I can’t wait to get back there to see all of the huge new Ben 10 displays they’re putting up next week!  Cartoon Network has promised a major presence at NYC’s TRU for Ben 10 Alien Force products.  The full range of items will be there: toys, action figures, DVDs, clothes… anything you can think of, Toys R Us will have it.  This includes a special play-it-here-first version of Ben 10: Alien Force the Game!  Maybe we should leave some ToonBarn flyers at the spot so all Ben 10 fans know to come here for their Ben 10 info! 🙂
