It was scary for us because we bought our son a big rescue center thing for his birthday last year, and I'm thinking "We're missing half the pieces already! How are we gonna do this? It's his favorite toy!" - but fortunately it wasn't included in the recall.
But honestly, it's beginning to worry me. And my son has a birthday coming up. yeesh.
Ok, Malta....not China. Phew! I knew it was not American made but wasn't sure where it was made. And I love the Pioneer set. Not that I play.....with it .......alone......or anything.
I'm with you Alan- there HAS to be a way our own great country can change things. I am definately on the "Don't buy from China" bandwagon. If only more people could wake up and realize what is happening.
My motto anymore is "Less is More". I buy organics...I have definately cut back on what I buy because it costs more but we get better. Now the same thing with toys....look for American made (is there even such a thing any more!!) even if it costs more...instead of buying many things for your children for Christmas..buy a few that are made in the USA.
Does anyone have a link to the toys that are made in the US? I think I'm going to go look and see what is available.
I know the prices are higher on American made toys, but if you don't buy a tons of toys, it's not that big of an issue. I buy each of my four children 2 toys for Christmas to go along with the books, clothes, art supplies, etc. that they get. I can afford to spend a little more for those two toys...
ETA: You can get some american made toys from Lehman's too. I'm planning on getting my youngest a sock monkey from there.
