    Made in China. Nuke’m from orbit it’s the only way to be sure.

    @j-o-h-n: That comment is inappropriate.

    @Ben Popken: Eh, that’s a fairly standard Internet joke. Though maybe you’re arguing that joking is inappropriate, I’m not sure.

    This is what you get when you offshore all of our manufacturing base to a country that has no safety standards, puts profits before people, and then sells those products to greedy corporations who also don’t seem to care about the safety of their customers.

    Okay LIONELHUTZ I see through your ruse. You are obviously a shill for LIONEL trains, and have come to lure us away from the Chinese magnetic lead based poison train.

    Are you implying that having safety standards makes us any better than our yellow brethren? For shame. We should not be so prejudiced against others simply because they wish to bury us in mediocre products. Think of all of the dollar store operators who are crying into their garlic-miso flavored drinking water.

    I urge you right now to go out and repent by purchasing some counterfeit electric cords, and 432 piece screwdriver sets.

    The sad thing is that I saw the headline and thought “and this is news?” Yes, it’s important to know what’s recalled, but this seems to be every day now. Maybe we should just instruct everyone to throw away anything made in China.

  7. Didn’t they already come out and say that parents should avoid buying small children any toy with magnets anyway?

  8. @ChrisC1234: You wouldn’t even necessarily know that item X came from China if you bought it awhile back and no longer have the original packaging. Furthermore, there are still recalls of stuff from this country.

  9. ChrisC1234 says:

    @Rectilinear Propagation: Actually, most of their cheap crap is always stamped “Made in China”… and if something wasn’t stamped, throw it out as well.

    Wow, that looks like a really fun toy. I want it.

    Have you ever put a magnet in your mouth and gotten that funny feeling/taste? … not that I have, but kids older than ‘little’ do. Given how many kids are infatuated with trains, this toy would appeal to kids upwards of 7 yo. And 20something college students too… wheee!
