Toys & Corn allergy, Warning

As Christmas time is coming up .. ok not for a while.. so don't panic. But if you're one of those, shop ahead of time to find the bargain types of shoppers..

Anyway, I thought it might be good to put a little warning here. Hopefully we'll have something more substantial with research in the future, but its best to know to watch out for this.

Delphi - Avoiding Corn: Polly Pockets has started several mothers putting together pieces of puzzling reactions and finding toys to be the culprit.

It is not really known yet, if it is the plastic of the toys (see our post Uses of Corn and Surviving Parenthood) or if the toys are being packaged using corn starch in the packaging.

Just a little heads up for now. Hopefully more to come later.

I just updated the parenting post I made earlier too, including all soft plastic toys as suspect. :(

I've been making sure to wash new toys before giving them to my child . . . I expect that helps somewhat.
