It is all kicking off today... some of you may have seen that Fisher Price has been forced to recall a load of kids toys due to potential safety fears about lead being in the paint.
A recall is the worse case scenario for any company and usually it can signal the death of a brand as the parent company quietly opens a new brand and closes the affected one down.
I am sure this won't be the case for Fisher Price but they are going to have a battle and a half regaining market trust as no one takes a risk when it comes to buying something for a child.
We all had Fisher Price Toys
The really sad story is that the co-owner of the company that made the dolls in China, Zhang Shuhong of Lee Der Industrial Co has hung himself, presumably because of the guilt of the business failure, making a sad story really quite tragic.
