    Default Recall Toys

    Exploding Hello Kitty toys recalled

    Although a Hello Kitty toy might not seem quite as dangerous (read:
    life threatening) as the notebooks and cellphones we're toting these
    days, the explosive tendencies have somehow veered from batteries to
    stuffed animals. In the latest episode of spontaneous combustion,
    Takara is being forced to recall specific Hello Kitty dolls which
    featured a heatable disc that could be warmed and stuffed within the
    lining to keep kids toasty while resting. Apparently the microwavable
    pad housed a chemical substance (manufactured by ADEKA) not quite
    stable enough to handle the heat, sparking a lengthy list of of cases
    where the liquid erupted from its container and provided an
    uncomfortable surprise to the poor soul embracing the creature's
    volcanic warmth. It was noted that this has "nothing to do" with the

    scapegoat-of-the-year (Li-ion cells), but if you (or your offspring)
    just loves to cuddle with this volatile critter, you should probably
    ice the situation before it unleashes something a bit more serious than
    a cat's meow.

    Re:Recall Toys


    Here's an alternate to a (probably expensive) and apparently dangerous warm up toy:

    Sew dry field corn ( you can get at feed or nature stores) into a small pillow-style bag (1 ft. square is a nice size) Fill it about 1/2 to 3/4 full. You can microwave these bags for about 60-90 seconds, depending on the wattage of your mic, and they will safely retain heat for upwards of an hour. My mother made one over the holidays for my 6 year old daughter and now she won't hardly go to bed without it. Nice and toasty and doesn't explode.
