There's no better time to teach your children that a penny saved is a penny earned than a recession. We might as well use the opportunity to foster a love of down-to-earth entertainment, innovative DIY projects and saving for an even rainier day. This Elegant Baby Piggy Bank ($32) offers a mod approach to coin savings that will look pretty on the dresser without costing you a fortune.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for 200 Elegant Baby sterling silver teethers that were sold between February 2005 and September 2006.
The decorative piece can break off of the $50 teethers and pose a choking hazard. The company has already received one report of the heart breaking off of a teether and becoming lodged in a baby's mouth. If you own this product, discontinue use immediately and contact Elegant Baby for a refund.
