Hasbro Earns a Special Place in my Heart

Hasbro found a way to make a good toy even better:

NEW YORK (CNN) -- For the second time this year, toymaker Hasbro has issued a recall for about 1 million Easy-Bake Ovens after receiving complaints that young children were getting their hands or fingers stuck in the oven's opening, causing serious burns.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Hasbro received about 249 complaints of children getting their hands stuck, 77 of them reporting burns.

One 5-year-old child sustained burns so severe that part of her finger had to be amputated.


I wonder if Hasbro will give me a deal on those recalled ovens instead of reworking them. I'll donate them all to Toys for Tots.
