China stops using lead, starts using CADMIUM? Aye yai yai
Personally, I try my best to avoid EVER buying anything made in China for Virginia, but gifts from well-meaning family and friends creep into my life and at risk of seeming ungrateful I incorporate them into V’s toy realm.
New policy: Fuck that. Also, note to would-be gift-givers: Here are some places you can buy toys NOT made in China …
NMC Toys (I think the NMC even stands for NOT MADE in CHINA – so that’s handy)
Louisville Sluggers — still made in the USA!
Select toys from Little Tikes
