Hasbro's Playskool Recalls `Busy School Bus' on Choking Hazard

I'm getting pretty peeved at a company that makes children's toys that can't seem to get this simple concept through its head:

DON'T MAKE PARTS ON WHICH A CHILD CAN CHOKE!

I'm starting to think that Hasbro is run by that character played by Dan Ackroyd on the old SNL skit.

Bag o' Glass, anyone? It's part of the very popular "Bag 'o" line. Yeah, we got Bag o' Glass, Bag o' Nails, Bag o' Splinters, Bag o' Vipers. Perfectly safe. Wonderful sellers.

RRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHH!

I'm having a very hard time keeping myself invested in a company that seems to show so little concern for children that it puts profit ahead of safety.

Peace, and Smooth Waters.
