I guess when you shop at Walmart now you get a surprise inside every box, Kinda like Cracker Jacks:
And like Cracker Jacks sometimes that surprise is a let down! Little 7 year-old Corrine Compton didn’t have to eat her way to the bottom of the box though. When she opened her Polly Pocket Toy Plane on Christmas morning, she found something that very much resembled a prison shank rattling around in the belly of the beast. If you ask me, I think it was just a razor knife wrapped in electrical tape, but the sensationalism is marvelous!
Seems even a day after Christmas Corrine’s parents could not get an explanation or a refund for the “tainted toy”, but Mattel seemed very willing to right the wrong. I’ve included the CNN video for your viewing pleasure! Walmart is also known for selling bibs tainted with lead paint. If you want to read more about their questionable ethics you can do so at a site called, Wal*Mart Watch . . .
