Can't believe my eyes when I read this --
Mattel apologizes to China over recalls
Simply outraged. Does Mattel think they can get away with this? As a mother of a 5 month old baby (and plan on having a second baby next year), I vow that I will never buy Mattel products ever. Will not buy their products for my own kid. Certainly will not send them as gifts to my friends. I will not give Mattel the chance to manufacture more safety-hazard toys out of China. I understand a company's need to cut cost and make profit. But a toy manufacturer who is too busy kow-towing to the rouge Chinese authorities, ignoring customers' concerns, and putting children at risk does not deserve my money.
Check this page for Mattel product listings.
And I will also write or call to Mattel to let them know my decision.

I suggest all mothers out there to support this and write to Mattel.
