MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT OF PHILLIPINES -- A COUNTRY BATTLING ITS OWN TERRORISTS -- PRESIDENT BUSH VOWED TO HUNT AL QUEDA AROUND THE GLOBE AND FINISH THE JOB IN AFGHANISTAN.
Bush "We could be there for quite a while which is fine, because we've got an objective in mind and we'll stay there until we get our objective."

So toys for kids this young have to be completely safe, no matter how they pull, break or even bite it.

(SOT JENNETTE GAYER/CALPIRG :06)

In January a 5-month old choked to death on a small ball that was attached to her stuffed caterpillar in her sleep.
The Public Interest Research Group says toys like Little Chefs Market contain too many small parts for kids.

(SOT VOICE ONLY :07)

If a toy or small part fits into the choke test tube, it will be able to block a childs airway and theyll choke.

(NAT BALLOON POP :01)


Some kids dont like loud noises.

(SOT GIRL :03)

Cause that hurts my ears, thats why.
But no toys should ever go higher than 85 decibals, like this Power Gear Turbo Blaster.

(NAT TURBO :03)


Other potentially dangerous toys include Crocodile Creek, Disney Princess Balloon, Cupcakes & Cookies Tea Set, Baby Soft Blocks Welcome Wagon and Barney Song Magic Keyboard. But doctors say warnings are worth nothing if parents dont heed them.

(DR. BEN GITTERMAN/CHILDRENS NATIONAL MEDICAL CENTER :06)

Children are not little adults. They dont know how to make the right choices. Adults have to do it for them.
Some companies still add toxic chemicals called phthalates to soften PVC plastic toys, even though its been linked to kidney damage. Thats why the group wont recommend this Who Loves Baby toy, which kids under three are sure to put in their mouth. But none of this: the lists, the labels, means anything if parents dont supervise their children. Chris Lawrence CBS News Los Angeles.))
