That's it! I'm only buying American!
Until Thomas the Tank Engine toys were recently recalled. We have a HUGE collection of these fun-loving trains...ones that have been "mouthed" many times by both my boys. I was horrified to learn that we owned almost ALL the items that had been recalled.
And then I'm watching "Good Morning America" today and hear of yet another recall. And again, we own a few of these toys. I am so disturbed by the fact that we, as American people, trust these manufacturers to produce things that they know are going to be USED BY CHILDREN, and yet in some of these cases, paints with high levels of lead are being used to make them! I mean, how difficult is it to use child-friendly paint and materials for KIDS TOYS??????
And so, I now join the ranks of those who have decided to NOT buy products from China. And I encourage you to do the same.
Thank you for listening. For more information, go here.
