Lead in Bouncy Houses

This news of lead in bouncy houses was especially depressing to me because (duh) my kids love bouncy houses. And also, I can distinctly remember watching P resting facedown on one of these. Probably licking it.

CEH created a great video about this problem AND what you can do to help your kids be safer. Lead is a proven highly potent neurotoxin, especially dangerous to kids' growing brains (and no picnic for adults either). Check out the video. And I'm going to remember to ask playplaces with bouncy houses if they've checked them out for lead (eg, SuperFranks and Pump It Up).
