Fisher-Price July 2009 Discovery Playground Opens in the San Diego Children's Zoo

San Diego, California - Excited children and weary parents now have a place in common at the San Diego Zoo. Opened Wednesday, the Children’s Zoo is home to the new Discovery Playground presented by Fisher-Price. It offers a stimulating experience for children of all abilities ages 5 - 12.
Log benches offer plenty of seating for parents to watch their children play.
The Zoo partnered with Fisher-Price to bring this new addition to life. Fisher-Price provided colorful picnic tables so families can enjoy lunch from the Children’s Zoo Cupboard across a bridge from the ADA-compliant playground. The thatched roof, red mask details and whimsical palm trees help create the theme of adventure.
The Discovery Playground takes up almost 1,300 square feet and features a net tunnel, pendulum bridge, climbing wall, periscopes, labyrinth game, picture puzzle, scramble net, talk tubes, alphabet game and a gnarly looking tube slide.
The two-story jungle gym gives children a place to bring out their inner animal. “Kids will have the opportunity to slide like otters, climb like koalas, balance like leopards and solve puzzles like primates” according to Victoria Garrison, director of education at the Zoo. “I’m excited that the Zoo can partner with Fisher-Price to provide a fun and safe place for kids to play.”

June 2009 Lead Penalties Play Rough With LA Toymakers

The fallout from the lead contamination crisis that rocked the toy industry two years ago – culminating in Mattel Inc. recalling about 2 million items made in China – is striking fear through Los Angeles’ many toy companies.
They are concerned because they now face civil penalties more than 12 times higher than in the past if their products are found to be contaminated by lead or a chemical used in plastic. Also, new regulations call for criminal charges – which could put toy executives in prison.
As if that weren’t enough, the toy companies now face stringent and costly labeling requirements, plus inspection delays at the ports.
In a settlement announced June 5, Mattel and its Fisher-Price subsidiary agreed to pay a $2.3 million penalty for importing and selling toys with hazardous levels of lead. That got the attention of L.A.’s toy manufacturers because it was the largest fine ever imposed by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on a toymaker.
“It is significant because it’s the first major penalty imposed under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act,” said Alex Epand, a partner in the downtown L.A. office of Nixon Peabody LLP who advises companies on federal consumer safety regulations. “Companies can look to it as a benchmark as to what kind of penalties will be assessed in the future.”
The record fine was also a way for the commission to make an example of the El Segundo toy giant.
“This was the commission’s opportunity to send a message to every manufacturer,” Epand said.
Under updated regulations, the commission’s civil penalties were raised from $8,000 to $100,000 per violation. The regulations also increased criminal penalties. A conviction could result in five years in prison and forfeiture of assets associated with the violation.
That means a toy importer who was found to have violated the new rules three times may have to pay a fine of $300,000, up from $24,000. And he may be sent to prison for up to five years.
Also, the commission doesn’t have to prove that company executives knew of any violations before they are hit with criminal charges.
The new regulations also let the commission force the company to give customers refunds, repairs or replacements of recalled products.
Los Angeles has a high concentration of toy companies, from the big ones such as Mattel and Jakks Pacific Inc. to smaller shops. The Central City East Association puts the number of toy companies in downtown’s Toy District at 500.
The costs are being felt across the industry.

Alter 2007 Nov The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Tsuruya-san Maid version PVC 1/8

Product: Tsuruya-san
Anime/Game: Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
Produced by: Alter
Scale: 1/8
Material:
PVC
Release Date: November 2007
Price: ¥5,800
Tsuruya-san is one of those characters that didn’t get a lot of screen time in Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, but has still managed to become quite a favourite amongst many. But the one thing that probably made her stand out was the maid outfit she wore during the school festival. If this figure wasn’t in her maid uniform I probably would have passed on ordering her. san_maid/tsuruya_01_small.jpg width=500 > san_maid/tsuruya_02_small.jpg width=500 >

Hollywood Cinema Collectibles Dec 2007 Store in Redlands specializes in high-end collectibles - San Bernardino Sun
Store in Redlands specializes in high-end collectibles
Remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger was best known for pretending to be a robot and blasting the heck out of Los Angeles?

The current governor of California would never have become the 'Governator' if he hadn't first starred in 'The Terminator' movies. These days, Schwarzenegger has other business on his agenda but memories of his movies and other flicks live on at Hollywood Cinema Collectibles, a new store in downtown Redlands that specializes in high-end collectibles.
Owner Tim Samra, who also owns the adjacent Tribal Reptile Co. pet store on Orange Street, opened Hollywood Cinema Collectibles on Nov. 17. The shop resembles a museum exhibit on action movies, horror shows and comic books.
Realistic, scale models of Sigourney Weaver, Sylvester Stallone and Schwarzenegger stand on shelves and in display cases inside the store. To the uninitiated, the items may look like highly-detailed action figures.
'They're not a toy, because toys don't have 32 to 36 points of articulation,' Samra said. 'You have all the same joints and parts as a human body does.'
'Look at Stallone,' Samra said, referring to a figure that depicts the actor as he appeared in 'Rambo III,' armed with a compound bow and Soviet machine gun. 'It looks just like they showed him (in the movie).'
Samra said the models are not action figures but examples of a better crafted kind of collectible called maquettes, of characters like the Green Goblin, Wolverine and Dracula as portrayed in a Bela Lugosi film.
Maquettes, Samra said, are similar to the kind of models that artists working on a major film would produce prior to shooting a movie. As can often be seen in 'making-of' documentaries, maquettes are crafted during pre-production so the the director can see what a character will look like once filming commences.
'Every collector in the world wants that,' Samra said.
Another difference between Samra's wares and toys is price. Pointing to a figure of Bruce Lee, he said only 500 such figures were released in the United States and his retails for $385.
'The expense of it can be staggering,' he said.
'My purchasing orders with one company, with one manufacturer don't drop below $30,000,' Samra said. 'I'm pre-ordering the new stuff for the next year. That purchasing order never drops.'
Samra, 43, said he started out as a big-Samrae collector when he was a 10-year-old fan of all things G.I. Joe.
'I was one of those kids where my parents bought me every single G.I. Joe thing that was ever made, then I got to the point where I thought girls were cool,' he said.
Unfortunately for Samra's collection, a particular girl called his G.I. Joe figures 'dolls,' which meant that the now-valuable toys wound up packed in a big box and donated to needy kids.
Samra figures he wouldn't need to work if he was able to sell those old G.I. Joes at their current value, but the way things turned out, he at least gets to work in a unique business.
'There's not another store (like mine) that I know of as a hobbyist,' he said.
