    Click on the links and it tells you where to go and what you can do. It also has the codes to see if your product has been affected or not.

      well this is just dandy - we bought ds the dora talking house and the individual figurines (all of which are pictured) after the may time period. therefore it says that i should follow the prompts in the mattel website BUT then it says which country am i from canada or the US? So does this apply to us in AUSTRALIA?????

      I really hope not, because my kids play with that thing nearly every day. BOOHOO!

        I finally received an email back from Matell. They want me to fill out a form and post it along with the doll house back to them. They didnt say what happens next so I am waiting for another email answering my questions.
        My probs with this are that I dont believe I should have to post back my DOLL HOUSE to them as I now have to find apropriate packaging for this and although its free to post it, its not free to package it.
        I also dont feel safe letting my girls play with other Dora items that although arent on the list, were still bought at the same time as the affected items.
        My BABY has been sucking on these lead covered toys, exactly what am I to look out for in regards to this? They didnt bother telling me that information, only that so far there havent been any injuries. So far.
        I dont know how this can have happened and where it all went wrong as its common knowledge that you DONT USE LEAD BASED PAINT!!!!!! And yet, not only did the Chinese makers use the paint, but where were the safety nets to guard against this happening and being allowed to be sold? Its all well and good to recall them, but how about not letting it happen in the first place!
        I am NOT happy.

              Bloody hell.

              I'm getting paranoid about Ava's Pooh Starlight projector now. She likes to chew his nose and there are chips of paint gone.
              Whose to say it won't be the next thing recalled.

              Stupid bloody companies.

                I can't seem to get into the magnet recall pages on the mattel site. Can anyone else? Does anybody know where else I can see the recalled products?

                  Eezy peezy range at Kmart - RECALLED

                  From another thread:

                  I went to layby one today at the $129 price, so I could get in before it went on sale and it wasnt allowed due to the recall...

                  Apparently the swings and other products in the same brand are also or have been recalled.
