Dangerous Teddy Bears on Sale

October 22nd, 2009

Christmas is a time for giving and what better way than sending a teddy bear to a young child.

However, please make sure that any product you buy - either from a shop in the high street or on the internet is safe!

Dangerous Christmas gifts of 2008

A host of potential Christmas gifts were collected under a tree by the Trading Standards Institute last year. All were either counterfeit, dangerous, or both.

Some of the Christmas Gifts had electrical faults, while a scooter had sharp edges and its handlebars fell off.

There were Doctor Who fake toys, fake branded goods such as bike jackets, shoes and electric guitars.

However, the biggest concern was with children’s toys.

The bears shown in the picture above are contaminated with lead and chromium and pose a real danger to children at what should be a magical time of year.

US Customs and Border Protection Intercept Dangerous Teddy Bears

In March 2009, the Miami International Airport Trade Enforcement Team seized 3 cartons of merchandise containing teddy bears manufactured in China.

During a routine inspection, the Customs and Border Protection officers noticed that the glass eyes on the bears were not securely attached and that they could become loose, posing a chocking hazard to young children.

16 samples were sent to the Consumer Product Safety Commission for further testing and evaluation where they were found to be in violation of the Federal Hazardous Substance Act for small parts requirements.

On the back of this testing, the entire shipment of 240 bears was seized.

Quality Comes First at Teddy Bear Friends

Afterbirth or Afterbearth?

October 7th, 2009

Doing It For The Kids is a current exhibition put on by [re] design to showcase the latest, most innovative sustainable toy concepts from around the world.

Designer Alex Green has come up with something that will certainly have some staring while many others won’t bear to look.

Twin Teddy Kit

Green has put together the Twin Teddy Kit or what is being referred to as the Placenta Teddy Bear - an eco-alternative for those who don’t want to eat their baby’s placenta, but want to pay their respects to the life sustaining organ by turning it into a unique teddy bear.

The Twin Teddy Kit “celebrates the unity of the infant, the mother and the placenta,” and enables preparation of the placenta so it may be transformed into a teddy bear.

How do you make a placenta teddy bear?

The placenta is cut in half then rubbed with sea salt to cure it. After it has dried out, it is treated with tannin and egg yoke, an emulsifying mixture that makes it soft and pliable. Then, you shape it into a teddy bear!

The Placenta Teddy Bear is intended to be a keepsake as it can’t be cuddled once inside its glass jar.

You can leave your comments as to whether you think this is a grand idea or something just a little creepy below.

Teddy has had his bear share of Weetabix

October 1st, 2009

Sitting happily in a field on Malt Kiln Lane, Bispham Green - near Parbold in Lancashire UK - this giant teddy bear is tucking in to a bowl of Weetabix.

The giant bear is 25 feet tall and was built by local farmer Cliff Martland as an entry into the national Wheat Art Competition run by Weetabix and the National Farmer’s Union.

Weetabix is committed to supporting British farmers and farming, with all of the wheat used in Weetabix sourced in Britain.

The competition offers farmers the chance to win up to £5,000 by designing a sculpture or art installation using bales from their farms. There are ten regional £2,000 prizes on offer to farmers in each of the ten television regions in England, Scotland and Wales, and the overall winner will get a further £3,000.

Taken by Neil Evans while he was out on a Sunday drive and printed in the Ormskirk & West Lancashire Champion, this huge bear has a spoon by his side and is looking quite full after his big breakfast.

The sign next to the massive bear reads, “Who’s been eating my Weetabix”.
