Who would have thought that this little toy would cost me so much time. When Riley's birthday rolled around he wanted Sarge and Fillmore, the last 2 "Cars" characters he didn't have. I searched and searched and searched for these toys....needless to say on the eve of his birthday I found them. I am not sure who was more excited me or him-LOL!! Today I found out that it is being recalled...one of the toys made in China (and they are using paint with LEAD in it). (picture me climbing up on my soap box right now and saying...) "How can these people sleep at night knowing that they are making toys for children with something knowingly harmful in it"!!!!!! It really ticks me off. (ok, climbing down :)) Now I have to stand in line AGAIN to return this little toy. Thanks for letting me vent.

tell me about it. we had sarge too. But what is worse it that we had the trains in the thomas the train recall, and all of the Dora and Diego toys in the other Mattel recall. Imagine how things are in my house when I have to keep taking away toys. I have decided that they can just play with a stick and be happy because that is not made with lead paint!!! hahaha

I just bought Mater for my grandson's BD on Saturday. It's not listed but thats scary too because it's the exact same packaging. Guess I'll be standing in the return line too!

do you return at the store? Fisher Price sent me paperwork to fill out and mail back to them at no cost. Thomas was the same way. Cathy-as for all your toys, if purchased before May 2007 (I think most of yours are), they're okay. I've been reading up. And Cathy just passed her Sarge onto me....the day before the recall...how funny, eh?
