Who needs Made in China crap when you can have gum?
I'm furious about this whole Made in China lead paint toy recall. Why are we even importing stuff from China? I know, because we want inexpensive stuff. But I'm done with that. I'll pay extra for toys that won't harm my child, thank you very much. But in the meantime, Henri went through my purse this morning and found something fabulous: two boxes of Marukawa Bubble Gum from the Japanese restaurant. They're little boxes filled with four gumballs each and they make a delightful sound when you shake them. This kept him entertained for a half hour while I went through his toybox and removed all the toxic Sesame Street toys.
