Time For a Toycott?

Parents plan to avoid Chinese-made toys this holiday season.

What can we learn from these seemingly endless toy recalls?

Let Mom•logic boil it all down for you:

  1. Lead is bad
  2. Toys made in China have lead
  3. Toys made in China are bad
Well, at least that’s the opinion of most parents nationwide.

According to a Harris Interactive poll, nearly half of all American shoppers will avoid toys with the “Made in China” label this holiday season, thanks to massive recalls of flawed and lead-tainted toys. But, since 80% of them begin their lead-laden lives there, parents will be hard-pressed to find toys NOT made in China.

And you can bet, for retailers, this news is going to go over like a lead balloon.

What's on your list this year? Will you boycott toys made in China?

Absolutly. I have already told friends and family that we would rather have a small toy or even just a big hug and kiss than a toy that is made in China. There are a lot of sites popping up that are helping with my Christmas list.

Great information. Good reading. There is one point to offer about t-shirts.
