I purchased the game at FAO Schwartz December 2005...is my game recalled as well, or is it just the ones sold at Target?

Thanks.

Anonymous - According to the CPSC, the recall only affects products sold after December 2006. If you purchased yours in 2005, as your comment mentioned, your game should not be included in the recall. However, we always think it better to err on the side of caution so you should contact the company to verify that your game is ok.

It's too bad, too. Our son was really disappointed that we had to return it. He (and we, too) loved it. I'm going to try to make one, as I haven't been able to find a replacement.
