Discovery Kids Inflatable Sprinkler Globe. Problem: We can't deflate ours! I no longer have the instructions (and can't find them online). You'd think you could just open up the plastic tab and maybe squeeze it to release the valve and the air would come out, but it doesn't. I've also tried sticking the end of the air pump in there, but that doesn't work either. Any ideas? Thanks!

When squeezing the valve, is the flap at the bottom of the valve opening? This is usually the cause of this problem. Sometimes these valves need to be pinched while pressure is applied to the item to force the air out.
Does your air pump also vacuum? Many electric air pumps have 2 attach points - air 'out' to inflate and air 'in' to deflate. For largef items, this is much more efficient for deflating.

    Thanks for responding! I did try pinching the valve. I wonder if the flap needs to be pushed/broken with something...

    When you are pinching the valve - can you see if there is a flap covering the opening?
    Try pinching lower on the valve - closer to the inflatable.
    Try pinching different points - if you are pinching top/bottom of the valve, now try left/right.

Lamps from Discovery Kids recalled for fire hazard


Tue, Jul 3, 2012 (BabyCenter News) -- Discovery Kids has announced a recall of about 300,000 of its animated marine and safari lamps in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

recalledlamp.jpg?width=153
The placement of internal wires near the circuit board can cause electrical short-circuiting and sparking, which poses a fire and burn hazard. There have been 11 reports of short circuiting, including three where the lamps caught on fire and caused property damage. No injuries have been reported.
The Discovery Kids Animated Marine and Safari Lamps feature rotating films with marine or safari scenes. The words "Discovery Kids" are printed on the front top-left corner of the product. The lamps have both an 11-digit batch number that begins with either 584894 or 10128 and a model number of 1628626, 1642433, 1641522, 1641523, 1645729, or 1645853. Batch numbers can be found imprinted in the plastic underneath the lamps and on the bottom of the packaging. Model numbers can be found on stickers placed underneath the lamps and on the bottom of the packaging near the barcode.
The lamps were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Bonton, JCPenney, Kohls, Office Max, and Toys "R" Us stores nationwide and online at Amazon, Ideeli, JCPenney, Kohls, Macy's, and Overstock. The lamps were sold from June 2010 through March 2012 for between $10 and $20. They were made in China.

Julie Beer, BabyCenter News
What you can do:
  • Immediately stop using the lamp and discard it.
  • Contact Innovage, the manufacturer of the recalled lamps, toll-free at (888) 232-1535 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website for instructions on how to obtain a full refund.
  • Get additional information about the recalled lamps on the CPSC's website.
  • Discuss this recall with other parents in our Product Recalls group.
  • Keep abreast of children's safety recalls by checking our recall finder and our latest recalls page.
