Totally agree 100%. No one should buy 1 Made in China (or any third world country for that matter) this Christmas. Until we speak up, loudly, this will continue to be a problem. We want tons of cheap stuff, and that means companies have to find cheap places to make them, and cut corners like crazy.
I am only buying toys made in USA, Canada, and Germany for now. And to answer a previous posters question about Made in China toys that are not on the recall list; I tossed 99% of them. They are not YET on any recall list, so who really knows if they are safe. Especially no-name brand toys. I dumped most of them in the trash and a few of the nicer namebrand ones (FP garage and such) I put by the trash, taker beware.
My ds's room looks so much nicer now! I kept all stuffed animals (even MIC ones) but washed them. And I bought some nice new wooden safe toys for the kids to play with. I would rather have 1 $30 toy than 6 $5 toys!
