how does this stuff keep going on ..
this lead in paint bad for people was found out HOW LONG AGO
and you still get all the toys and "accidents" happen
why would companies even risk them...

Yea, there's an address on the site I linked to for you to send the trains in and they'll compensate you..either with replacements or gift certificates or a cheque. It sucks that it takes 6-8 weeks, and your kid is out being able to play with their toys for that long, though.
