What are we suppose to do with all the toys that we have to take away from our children where do we send them for replacements?

I think it is awful that mattel would sell product from china that harm our children just so they can make a few extra cents per toy.
Also they state excessive amounts of lead in toys, to me any amount of lead in toys is a bad thing. I will never purchase another product from this company just so they can use inferior products from china to make an extra few cents.

I believe that Mattel has not taken responsibility for this problem. Instead they have shifted the blame to China. Indeed, China was responsible for the tainted paint but the head of the company there paid the ultimate price for the shame he brought upon his family,company and country, his life! Where were the Mattel inspectors? Where was the Mattel quality control? Ultimately, this was Mattel's problem! Which of the Mattel executives will take responsibility?

My child is so upset that she has to have some of her toys taken away - you would think that the people in the toy industry would have a better sense of what is safe and what is not.
