It’s been hours, maybe even days since the last toy recall, so it was with considerable relief that we opened yet another Consumer Product Safety Commission recall. Because if we’re not upending our kids’ toy boxes searching for deadly toys on a daily basis we get so, like, bored. Seems the CPSC has recalled 300,000 of these Cuddly Cousin Plush Insect toys – ladybugs, bumble bees, caterpillars, snails and two butterfly designs sold for a buck apiece at dollar stores. Their small parts fall off and pose a choking hazard. CPSC urges parents to take these toys away from their children and return them to the store, although for a buck… it’s hardly worth the gas to get there.
