McDonalds 2008 July Kids Urged to Collect Happy Meal Toys for 'The Dark Knight'
Kids Urged to Collect Happy Meal Toys for Film They're Not Supposed to See

LOS ANGELES, CA- Toddlers and pre-tweens are flocking to McDonalds restaurants all over the country scooping up as many Happy Meal toys as they can in advance of next week's premiere of The Dark Knight They're out to collect them all: the caped crusader, the horribly disfigured Joker, the one with two faces, each more nightmare inducing than the next. It's all part of Warner Brothers' brilliant marketing campaign to get very young consumers buzzing with excitement over a film they are technically not supposed to see. So far, the approach appears to be working beautifully.
'It looks so awesome,' said one seven year old upon seeing the trailer during the previews for Kit Kittredge. 'I can't wait until I can't see this movie.' P> As any negligent parent will point out, today's juvenile audiences are far more sophisticated than most adults realize, and it is just this sort of sophistication and jaded inhumanity that McDonalds' new cross-promotional ad campaign seeks to highlight:
Timmy: Peew! Peew! I'm the joker and I died of a possible drug overdose!
Bobby: I really enjoy this film's use of extremely graphic violence as an ironic device. It really makes you think PEEW! PEEW!

Although The Dark Knight is rated PG-13 for violence, menace, and being generally creepy as hell, studio sources say it was nearly slapped with an R until Nolan compromised by dialing back a bit the nudity and implied necrophilia. Not too much blood curdling violence and cinema verité death, just the family friendly amount. At its core The Dark Knight is, likrlike all Batman-related films, essentially a kids movie, following in the tradition of other children's classics like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Faces of Death. And this, say Warner Brothers executives, is why kids can't seem to get enough of it- and why the movie is poised to make $100 million its opening weekend primarily in dimes and quarters.

Kaiyodo July 2008 at Gagosian 21st Street Gallery 'Retrospective': Been There, Sold That - New York Sun
'Retrospective,' a group show at Gagosian's 21st Street gallery, is like a summer concert festival with some very promising, big-name acts. Its organizing principle, the ways a major artist looks back and reassesses his — unfortunately, in this case, only his — career, also strikes a promising note. Too bad, then, that so many of these guys showed up out of shape, like Vegas has-beens listlessly running through medleys of their greatest hits.
(Gagosian)' href=http://www.nysun.com/pics/5397.jpg rel=lightbox[slideshow]>Click Image to Enlarge Gagosian Tom Friedman, 'Inside Out' (1991-2006).

For the opening act, Gagosian wheels out the granddaddy of most of today's overripe rock-star artists, Marcel Duchamp, who, with his 'Boîte en Valise' (1935-41), apparently invented the box set. His consists of a leather valise containing photographs, some hand-colored, and miniature reproductions of Duchamp's best-known pieces. Yet one has to wonder about the intended audience: Can even those who revere Duchamp as the original aesthetic subversive appreciate a cheesy, shrunken 'Fountain,' a photo of 'Ready Made' (a wine-bottle drying rack) pasted on black construction paper like a scrapbook entry, and a repro of 'LHOOQ,' his never-shocking, never-funny mustachioed 'Mona Lisa'? It seemed to me less a greatest-hits collection than a sad, parodying self-portrait of an aging, artistically impotent man trying to make a buck off his past.
But one doesn't have to look back very far to find artists making unintentional mockeries of themselves. Takashi Murakami (b. 1963) looks back as far as, like, yesterday. His 'Superflat Museum' — here in both the 'LA Edition' (2005) and the 'Convenience Store Edition' (2003) — assembles 10 plastic figurines, miniatures of his sculptures or characters from his paintings. It's the sort of thing you might buy from QVC during a drunken late night. And if you act now, for the low, low price of — insert absurd amount here — you get a 2-inch-high 'Hiropon' (1997), handcrafted by the 'renowned' toy manufacturer Kaiyodo, and complete with enormous lactating breasts. If you call in the next four minutes, we'll throw in a certificate of authenticity, 'a mini-portfolio including information about the work that inspired' the figurine, 'as well as two pieces of chewing gum.' (All quotes taken verbatim from the press release.) Offer limited to two a customer.

McDonald's Nov 2007 Tampered With The Sell-By Date On Salads + Japanese Kids meal Toys

Food Safety in Japan
 
The CEO of MacDonalds Japan found himself making an official apology after it was discovered that 4 franchise chains tampered with the sell-by date on salads. (source)

The boss of the MacDonalds franchise chains said that the salads were going to be thrown away (which was a waste) so they changed the labels to make the products look fresh and were able to sell the stale salads to customers.

This is not the only type of tampering that goes on with food products labels in Japan. In an effort to reduce costs, scrap meat has been labeled as beef, vegetables from China have been labeled as domestic etc etc.
Does tampering of food product labels happen in your region?

BTW, the pictures in this article are of the freebies that come with the kids meal - this time round its PuriCure goodies for the girls and Blue Dragon for the lads.

Jakks Nov 2007 Cabbage Patch Kids Launch 25th Anniversary Celebration on QVC(R) - CNNMoney.com
To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of one of the most iconic doll brands of all time, Play Along(R), a division of JAKKS Pacific, Inc. , is scheduled to launch its Premiere Edition Cabbage Patch Kids(R) Celebration Baby on QVC(R) starting at midnight on Monday, December 3.
The beautiful new Celebration Baby, which comes with a special Carvel(R)-branded ice cream cone, was created especially for QVC to begin a year-long celebration of the brand's silver anniversary. The Celebration Baby will be available throughout the day -- while supplies last.
'For the past five years, every new Cabbage Patch Kids doll in our line has been introduced on QVC with record-breaking success,' said David Gold, VP of marketing, Play Along. 'We're thrilled to work with QVC once again on our biggest initiative together to date and to offer QVC viewers the first keepsake from the Cabbage Patch Kids 25th Anniversary collection.'
Rich Yoegel, director of home merchandising for QVC, added, 'We are excited to be celebrating this tremendous milestone with Play Along and the QVC viewers. Our shoppers have embraced the Cabbage Patch Kids collection for years and have made it one of our most successful toy brands. We look forward to many more years as the shopping destination for the newest Cabbage Patch Kids.'
The Premiere Edition Cabbage Patch Kids Celebration Babies are adorned in birthday party attire and come with a special Carvel ice cream cone that they can 'really' lick! When the ice cream sprinkles get all over their face, the special washcloth wipes them clean again. Every Celebration Baby is 'One of a Kind' and comes with two extra fashions, a unique name, birth certificate and adoption papers.
'Carvel Ice Cream was founded in 1934, so it seems appropriate that two long-time beloved brands would come together for this milestone celebration,' said Carvel President Gary Bales. 'The young and young-at-heart will enjoy this special edition doll now and for another 25 years to come.'

Disney Nov 2007 Reaches To The Crib To Extend Princess Magic Wall Street Journal
At the recently opened Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Cinderella's castle in Walt Disney World, hordes of young girls in ball gowns jostle every day to get their hair coiffed, their nails painted and their faces plastered with make-up to imitate their favorite princess. It's an image that's become classic of the Walt Disney Co. Princess revolution. What started out in 2001 as a few princess outfits became an overnight sensation as Disney enchanted 3- to 6-year-old girls throughout America with everything from princess comforters and princess backpacks to princess-emblazoned sneakers. Smartly-packaged releases of classic princess movies have helped bring girls back for more each year.
[Princess makeovers at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World.]
Princess makeovers at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney World.
But while Disney appears to have exploited every corner of princess mania, it is also under pressure to keep its $4 billion princess franchise growing. So Disney's princess minders are hoping to hook even younger girls and their moms on the craze with a new range of princess products aimed at newborns. The princess clan will feature on cribs, diaper-changing mats and other infant products next year. Also on tap: adding new princesses to the core lineup that includes Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, Belle and Jasmine (more-recent characters, Mulan and Pocahontas, are largely on the sidelines). Disney plans to introduce a new African-American princess called Tiana in an animated film, 'The Princess and the Frog,' a response to demands for more diversity among princesses. Two other animated princess-based movies -- one starring Rapunzel and another starring a Scottish princess in a new Pixar production -- will be rolled out after that. Meanwhile, Disney's first live-action princess movie, 'Enchanted,' will hit screens this week and is being tapped to sell more princess products. The movie -- in which an animated girl betrothed to a prince is propelled into modern-day, live-action New York City -- was originally conceived as a chance to introduce a new princess, Giselle, to the lineup, according to people familiar with the matter. But Disney abandoned that plan when it realized securing the life-long rights to the image of Amy Adams, who plays Giselle, was harder than an ugly step-sister squeezing into Cinderella's glass shoe. Andy Mooney, Disney's head of consumer products who launched the Princess brand, concedes that the heady growth of recent years is likely to slow at home and that the company is looking to push the brand more aggressively overseas. That initially means Europe, then Asia. Disney has been trying to introduce the brand in countries like India, where it launched a search for an Indian princess. One challenge in the more mature home market: a brewing backlash against what Disney Princess represents. Tomi-Ann Roberts, a professor of psychology at Colorado College, complains that the princesses have become more sexualized, with more skin showing and bigger heads, eyes and breasts. 'The ever increasing marketing to younger and younger girls of an adult sexualized version of the princesses is concerning,' says Ms. Roberts, who co-authored a report on the sexualization of girls.

Mattel Nov 2007 Now a good BUY? - Wall Street Journal
Just in time for the holidays, shares of battered toy maker Mattel (MAT) are looking attractive. The stock is languishing near a 52-week low of around $20 a share, the result of a series of product recalls -- mostly of products made in China, where the government of Guangdong province has indicated it might sue Mattel for harming its reputation.[Mattel] Last week Mattel issued its fifth recall in recent months, this time for products made in Mexico. But that recall was fairly minor, and the company, known for toy classics like Barbie, Ken and the Fisher Price line, looks to have put its problems behind it. 'There's very little, if any, downside risk' to Mattel's stock, says Linda Bolton Weiser, a toy analyst at Oppenheimer. She figures the stock could rebound by 50% in the coming year, to about $30, as parents -- and investors -- regain their confidence in the El Segundo, Calif.-based company. In an email last week, Mattel representatives said the company 'has now tested samples of the vast majority of products expected to ship for the holiday season.' Top public-relations pro Howard Rubenstein of New York, who does not represent Mattel, credits the company with moving quickly on the recalls, apologizing and making a public commitment to safety. After studying the situation, Mr. Rubenstein concludes that the company has avoided major consumer defections so far but must avoid more recalls. While some lawsuits are pending against Mattel, they are considered manageable, as no one has died from the products in question. These include Batman action figures, Polly Pocket and some Barbie accessories Mattel has some 'short-term issues, but for the longer term, there's little effect' from the recalls, says Ira Carnahan, fund manager at T. Rowe Price, which has owned the stock for about a year. He figures the stock has 'very limited downside' and ample room to run. 'It doesn't need a sensational year, just a good year,' Mr. Carnahan says.

Nov 2007 Forces unite to get kids toys
photo Members of the Marine Corps drop off donated toys during the 2005 toy drive. This year, the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps is teaming up with The Salvation Army in Cathedral City to help distribute the toys in the Coachella Valley.
For 60 years the Marine Corps has collected and donated toys for children in need during the holidays.
Through the Toys for Tots program, it accepts new, unwrapped toys for children up to 18 years old and distributes them around Christmastime.
This year, the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps base is teaming up with The Salvation Army in Cathedral City to help distribute the toys in the Coachella Valley.
'We are going to be able to reach more needy families than ever before,' said Maj. Brian Manifor, who is running the program for Twentynine Palms this year. 'We are both really excited.'
It's a partnership that Capt. Jessica Doria of The Salvation Army has seen work successfully in other areas.
'Our motivation was to better serve these agencies and bring some relief to the Toys for Tots people,' Doria said. 'We can meet the needs of the community and serve the people better.'
To get toys to distribute, Coachella Valley nonprofits should contact The Salvation Army.
'We can really expand outreach,' Manifor said.
The best toy donations include sporting goods; toy airplanes, boats or cars; dolls; board games, books, bicycles, scooters, puzzles, models and small electronics, according to the program's Web site, toysfortots.org.
Organizers discourage donating stuffed animals, as they are hard to keep clean, and will not accept toy guns, knives, bows and arrows, whips or handcuffs.
Toys for Tots does collect monetary donations, which are used to buy toys for youth in age and gender groups that do not get many donations.
Donations are sometimes scarce for teenage children and infants, Manifor said.

Nov 2007 Relax And Make Some Wood Toys For Needy Kids!
MERRILLVILLE | It can be slow, painstaking work but members of the Northwest Indiana Woodworkers Association make toys at Christmas for the joy of it and for the pleasure it brings on the faces of toddlers.

The association met Thursday night at Pierce Middle School, and brought more than 1,000 wooden toys that were made by members and displayed atop tables and chairs in the school's cafeteria. Members were beginning the task of boxing up the toys.

Each year, the association makes and distributes the toys to 15 organizations throughout Northwest Indiana which, in turn, distribute the toys to needy children.

Emery 'Skip' Brazil and his wife, Claudia, of Valparaiso, said the toys are generally made individually, then woodworkers come together and invite friends to help sand, paint or varnish.

Skip Brazil said most of the work is done by hand, but this year the group also bought more than 4,000 wheels. Brazil, who has a woodshop attached to his house, said they spend plenty of time using a scroll saw, sanders or a drill press to put the toys together.

He pointed to a brightly painted circus train, which he said takes hours to put together because each piece has to be cut individually.

Tables were loaded with all kinds of long-lasting, wooden toys, including airplanes, a soft pink cradle holding a baby doll with handmade blankets, a John Deere farm tractor and wagon, and a crayon tote filled with crayons and coloring books.

Claudia Brazil said the work is a 'good fit' for the couple, which has been woodworking for 20 years and serve as co-chairmen of the organization's toy committee.

David and Marcie White, of Cedar Lake, who are president and vice president, respectively, said there are about five women in the association.

Marcie White, a surgical nurse at St. Margaret Mercy Healthcare Centers in Dyer, said the work also is relaxing.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Hideaki Asada bought his second radio-controlled helicopter in two months last week. The first one broke after his 8-year-old son, Keito, crashed the toy during landing.
'This one is just for me. Keito has shown he can't be trusted yet,' said Asada, 39. Dad likes to fly the 15-centimetre (6-inch) chopper at night, after a long day in the accounting division in an IT consulting company.
'It has a searchlight,' he said.

With rotor blades that whir with a flick of a switch, it can hover, veer right or left and stay in the air for two hours. Asada's chopper, made by Taiyo Kogyo Co Ltd <7449.Q>, is one of several now on market, at prices that range from about 4,000 yen to under 10,000 yen ($35 to $87).
As the population ages and video games provide stiff competition, this holiday season Japanese toymakers are targeting adults like Asada with a line-up of toys that play to their childhood nostalgia as well as their love of high-tech.
CCP Co Ltd, a unit of toymaker Bandai Co Ltd and supplier of radio-controlled choppers to U.S. toymakers, plans to equip their latest models with infrared rays to fly combat missions, retailers said.
'That's going to be big. Already there are weekends when we run out of stock of the newest models,' said Manabu Kamamura, who works in the toy section of Yodobashi Camera Co in Tokyo's Akihabara district, which has a cluster of electronics stores.
The customers are usually men, ranging in age from late 20s to 50s, Kamamura said.
With the birth rate declining in Japan, toymakers are hoping to gain new revenue from grown-ups, by offering realistic miniatures that make full use of cheaper and smaller motors, chips, sensors and batteries.
Lower prices for components mean that even robots are becoming affordable for the holidays.
Toymaker Takara Tomy last month released its new i-SOBOT, which comes with a camera, gripping hands, 17 servo motors and a gyro sensor for automatic balance. Its 31,290 yen ($272) price is less than one-third of the price of its Omnibot 2000 of the mid-1980s. Tomy targets 50,000 unit sales in Japan and abroad.
Consumers can also buy a kit and build their own robot, for a fraction of the price from five years ago.
'You can build a robot for less than 100,000 yen ($870) now that can stand up, walk, do push-ups, back flips and dance,' said Yamato Goto, spokesman at Tsukumo Robot Kingdom, a Tokyo retailer that specializes in robots. More people in their 30s to 50s are buying kits such as those made by Kondo Kagaku, he said.
'In a genre where sales of even 100 units are a huge hit, we've sold about 3,000 kits in the two years since they've come out,' Goto said.

Disney Sept 2007 Family Fun Karito Kids World Collection - #1 Means The Same Thing In Any Language
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Whether you say it in English (number one!), Chinese (shu ma yi!), Swahili (hesabu moja!), Spanish (numero uno!) or Italian (novero una!) it all translates the same way: The best of the best. Of course, these five languages are how the dolls who make up the Karito Kids World Collection® would say it. That's because this brand new and totally unique line of dolls and books is completely international.

It is a testament to the high-quality of Karito Kids World Collection that they made the 16th annual FamilyFun Toy of the Year (T.O.Y.) Awards list in their flagship year. But it's even more impressive that after extensive testing of more than 200 toys - by invitation only - Karito Kids was crowned with the #1 spot. According to parent company KidsGive co-founder, Laura Rangel, 'We are so absolutely thrilled around here you have no idea. This company and product began as a dream from my business partner, Lisa and I, so to see it become a reality is phenomenal. Now add this amazing award and we are overjoyed.'
Published by Disney Publishing Worldwide, FamilyFun is the nation's largest magazine targeting families with children ages 3 to 12 years old, with a rate base of 2 million and an audience of 4.8 million. Here's why FamilyFun awarded Karito Kids with the Toy of the Year Award, as described in the November issue, which hits newsstands October 9th:
Karito Kids Dolls
Number 1 Toy of the Year
Recommended Ages: 6 and up
Price: $99.99
'Our testers were instantly drawn to the beautiful true-to-life faces of the Karito Kids World Collection -- stylish yet sweet girls from China, Italy, Kenya, the United States, and Mexico. But once they read about each 21-inch-tall doll, her country, and her particular passion (soccer, fashion, panda bears) in the included adventure books, they were truly smitten. A bonus: 'tweens can go online to direct 3 percent of their doll's retail price to a children's charity.'

Bandai Sept 2007 PC Key to Block Access to Harmful Sites for Kids - Japan Corporate News
Tokyo, Sept 3, 2007 (Jiji Press) - Bandai Co. and Buffalo Inc. said Monday they will launch on Sept. 14 a personal computer accessory designed to block access to harmful Internet sites by children.

The product, 'PASOKON Kids Key,' comes in a shape of a 9-centimeter-long key that can be inserted in a PC through the universal serial bus slot.

When inserted, the UBS key automatically changes the PC screen to child mode, allowing users to connect to the Internet only through a portal site designed especially for children, with access restricted to sites suitable for viewing by children.

The product, which also helps limit children's browsing time, is expected to sell for 3,480 yen.

Bandai, a toy-making arm of Namco Bandai Holdings Inc. <7832>, and Buffalo, a major USB flash memory maker, aim to sell 200,000 units by the end of March, the companies said.

Sept 2007 Number of Kids Hurt by Dangerous Products More than Doubles - Consumer Affairs
A new study finds that the number of children injured by products recalled for fire- and burn-related hazards more than doubled in the last five years, in comparison with the preceding decade. The study, conducted by the nonprofit organization Kids in Danger (KID), examined the 40 children’s products recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the last five years for risk of fire and burns, and analyzed the recall process and its participants. “The fact that 40 products were recalled in the last year, compared to 42 products in the ten years before that means that somewhere along the way, children’s product safety is getting sacrificed,” Emma Rosenberg, the report’s author said. “Technological advancements should correlate with a decrease in injuries and a decrease in recalls, not the opposite.” The report found that products were recalled for electrical failure, battery failure, flammability, and exposed heat surface/substance. A total of 5,400,014 units were recalled.

Easy-Bake

While the report found that the majority of the products, nearly 60%, were recalled due to battery and electrical failure, the product which caused the most injuries and had the second largest recall was Hasbro Inc.’s Easy-Bake Oven, whose hazard was an exposed heat surface. In redesigning the decades-old design that relied on a light bulb, the new Easy-Bake Oven had metal inside of the oven that children could access through the front opening. ”While recent recalls of products contaminated with lead have focused attention on the manufacturing process and imports, this recall shows that faulty design contributes as well to injuries,” said Nancy Cowles, executive director of KID. Some of the most hazardous products recalled included:

• 1,000,000 units of Hasbro Inc.’s Easy-Bake Oven, responsible for 82 burns, one so severe as to require the amputation of a five-year-old’s finger,

• 180,000 units of Creative Innovation and Sourcing LLC’s radio- control Pro-Flying Saucer, responsible for burning 7 children,

• 233,000 units of Fisher-Price’s Crib Mobile Toy, responsible for dripping battery acid on six infants, chemically burning them. Other findings of the report include:

• Elkton Sparkler Inc. had the largest recall at 1,700,000 units of Bamboo Stick Sparklers.

• Thirty percent of the products recalled failed to pass the Federal Flammable Fabrics Act; all were articles of clothing.

Big contributor

Two manufacturers were responsible for four of the forty recalls in one year alone. In February 2006 Creative Innovations and Sources LLC recalled 8,000 of its Thunder Spin R.C. Road Rage Stunt Machine Trucks. Over a month later, it recalled 180,000 radio- controlled Pro Flying Saucers. Spin Master Toys waited even longer between recalls: nearly three months between recalling 7,500 radio- controlled airplanes and 46,200 remote-controlled helicopters.
