Recalls galore, and the winner is...


I have not yet received a response from our giveaway winner with a mailing address so that I might mail out her prize.  If I have not heard from her by Wednesday night at 11:59 PM, I'm going to pick a different winner by random number generator.  Also, just wanted to let those of you know who were affected by the bunny cup recall, I returned the offending cup to Target and received a refund of $3 and change, no problems.  Hope everyone else has a similarly easy experience.  

Be on the lookout for a new product announcement within the next 24 hours.  Hint:  It matches the washcloth set from the giveaway.  

After a tough case of food poisoning, my hubby was finally well enough for us to leave on vacation early last week.  We had a blast visiting family in Florida near Destin.   

Hayden wasn’t enamored with the beach like we thought he would be.  In fact, he was down right terrified of the sand.  Notice the death grip he has on Bryan's shirt!  This too shall pass me thinks.

I promise, not every blog topic will be about consumer product recalls, but I do have a couple to tell you about today.

But wait!!!  We have a winner from our first ever giveaway.  Selected by a random number generator…drum roll please…lucky number 7.  Lee!  Congratulations Lee and thanks to everyone else who entered.  We’ll have more giveaways in the future, so keep an eye out!  Lee, be sure to send me your contact information so I can mail out your prize!

Now on to the recalls:

I’m sad about this first one…Target is recalling a bunny sippy cup that the Easter Bunny left Hayden this year.  He loved it.  I guess better safe than sorry though, so it will be going back to the store.

The ear that sticks up on the cup can poke the child in the eye when they drink out of it.  The cups can be identified by imprints on the bottom: "TARGET 200020683" for pink and "TARGET 200020884" for the blue.  Return the cup back to Target for a full refund.

Manhattan Group LLC is recalling Whoozit® Starry Time baby rattles.

The clear balls on either end of the rattle can break releasing small parts that are a choking hazard for small children.  The recall notice does not specify a model number or dates that it was sold, so you should visit Manhattan Groups website here for more information on the recall to find out if your rattle is involved in the recall.  If so, they can be returned to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.

As we get ready to baptize Sophie on Sunday, I wish you all a safe and blessed weekend.
