Default Unanswered: Where are the real charms

Does anyone know when the real charms will be coming back to the stores. The stores around my place never got the whole set. It has been months since they ever got any. I am only missing 1 charm to complete my set (the unicorn). Hope to see some soon. Wonder what the problem can be.

The rep in our area says they're "on back order." Which could mean anything from a worker's strike somewhere to a factory being destroyed by some natural disaster, or some kind of defect in the actual product causing them to be temporarily discontinued. I doubt they would have discontinued them permanently without a good reason. It seems they lost alot of money this time of year by NOT having them. I know of alot of Easter Baskets that would have had charms included if Ganz had only made them available.

A store owner told me that they were recalled and discontined because of lead. I have to real proof of this but she said that is what Ganz told her. I would really like to know if this true or not.

I asked my friend who owns a store and sells them this awhile ago, because they are made in China. She said they have not officialy been recalled because everyone would know it. She bought a lead testing kit heself and tested one and it did **NOT** prove positive for lead. If you or any of your parents are concerned about this, the kits are available for a reasonable price. They work not only on Charms, but on anything else you might be worried about..)

Now keep in mind tht's just one person testing one charm, but it did NOT contain lead.
I wouldn't worry about that because if they were recalled it would be on the news and all the stores that sold them would be required to put up posters and stuff. They are made overseas so the problem really could be anything.
