Nov 2007 Toy Recalls, Iffy Economy Aid Shoppers - The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Lead on toys was bad enough, but last week's recall of a toy tainted with a date rape drug threatens to turn into a lump of coal for toy retailers just as the key holiday selling season gets started.
The recall of Aqua Dots comes just as the industry was starting to see shoppers return to toy stores after summer's high-profile recalls of more than 21 million Chinese-made toys with high levels of lead or dangerous magnets.
Aqua Dots, distributed by Spin Master Ltd. in the U.S. but made in China, was on many retailers' hot toy lists, and there are very few substitutes, retail executives say.
Reports of children knocked unconscious after swallowing the tiny colorful beads set off a whole new level of worry among parents.
The good news for shoppers is that they're being bombarded with free shipping offers and fat discounts as rivals like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Toys 'R' Us try to out do each other and draw reticent consumers. Most of the discounting had been planned, but at least one toy retailer — eToys.com — added a free shipping offer after a disappointing October.
The Aqua Dot recall is 'scarier than all the others,' said Stacey Ryan, of New Providence, N.J., who planned to buy Aqua Dots for her three-year-old daughter Shannon. The summer recalls had already made her cautious about buying toys for Shannon and her two-year-old sister Bridget. But she reasoned, what could be worse than them swallowing the Aqua Dots? Little did she know that the beads were coated with a toxic chemical that metabolizes into gamma hydroxy butyrate or GHB — the so-called date rape drug.
Now, Ryan is focusing on bigger toys like baby dolls and stuffed animals — items her children can't swallow. 'If it looks like a piece of fruit or a snack, I just won't buy it,' she said.
'I really don't understand how a toy like that can have something like that put into it,' said Colleen Scanlan, from Sun Prairie, Wis., who is trying to find a replacement for Aqua Dots for her daughters, ages 5 and 8. 'They've been asking for it for about a year, so that one will be a big disappointment.'
While many toy merchants say so far shoppers largely have not been rejecting Chinese-made toys — which make up 80 percent of U.S. playthings — they are being choosier. A poll done last month by Harris Interactive showed that one-third of Americans say they will be buying fewer toys this holiday season due to safety concerns, and 45 percent said they will avoid buying toys made in China.
