1.0 out of 5 stars Blue dye rubs off, April 6, 2009
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Rock-a-Stack (Baby Product)
I purchased the Rock-a-Stack for my 6 month old son on Friday April 3,2009. I came home to wash the product and soon realized the water I was washing it in was blue. Then my hands and arms were stain blue. I was very grateful that I washed this product before giving it to my son. Who knows what type of paint Fisher-Price uses and even if they say it is non-toxic as parents I am sure we don't want our children getting the paint in their mouth. I scrubbed the blue ring for a couple of minutes and there is still dye coming off of the ring. I can't imagine if I gave this to my son, his clothes, skin, blankets, and our carpet would have been stained blue.

I called the 800 number for Fisher-Price and they did not seem the lease bit concerned. I have written more about our experience at : rock-a-stackbluering.blogspot.com

I DO NOT recommend this product and I hope this is taken off the shelves at stores ASAP!

If you have had a similar experience please post on our blog so we can make this know Nationwide and get this defective Fisher-Price product off the selves!

Thank you for the warning! I'm with you, just because something is supposedly non-toxic doesn't mean it should be ingested!

I'm actually browsing through baby toys looking for fun things for my three rabbits to play with. Naturally, they'll be grabbing things with their teeth. Baby toys should - in theory - be safe for rabbits (as long as the plastic isn't too soft/easily chewed up by a bunn) since babies put *everything* in their mouths and parents of young children are as concerned about choking hazards as I am about my rabbits being able to potentially swallow something that would cause a blockage. I don't want my bunnies getting any sort of paint/dye/coloring in their mouths, and no parent wants their child to do so either.

The fact that it only comes off when wet (from the sounds of it) is hardly reassuring - babies drool, young children play with some of their toys in the bath tub and toys need to be cleaned/disinfected when you get them and periodically afterward for safety reasons - you can't assume a toddler toy won't be exposed to water!

Ridiculous. It's like they don't even do any sort of safety/quality testing... or if they do, they clearly disregard the results.
