Which toy brands aren't made in china?

post #1 of 37

Seriously. Because I'm spending too much time surfing online at oompa toys and magic cabin. And it's hard enough bargain hunting and deciding, but even Haba is made in China!? I'm so confused.

I thought Haba was made in Germany?

Look at Plan Toys and Bajo.

Baby Center has a decent selection of non China toys.

I do love plan toys. Well I was browsing haba boy dolls and half of them said "designed in Germany and lovingly made in China." I don't really feel like chancing it. Plus a lot of the websites had other brands with stuff made in China. Fat chance I'll find a piggy bank not made in China.
Thanks for the links.

In case anyone else is wondering, I also read about this one today. Not a huge selection but cute wooden stuff made in vermont.

Spiel and Holz is one of my favorites and they are from Germany. Also- shopping local like at craft shows and Holiday fairs.
I don't know if this is legal, but on my earthetarian site I carry a very small selection of wooden toys that are made in Russia. :

Check out China Free Christmas. They have brands you can trust and brands that need to be checked carefully.

Is it me or is so much of the made-in-the-USA stuff plastic unless it's from really small stores? I'm not anti-plastic completely but it is getting on my nerves lately. We had a lot of little tyke stuff and playmobil that got on my nerves (windpipe stoppers I call playmobil). Lots of good info though. Thanks for the link.

I just see someone ready to make a fortune. If I were and entrepreneuer, I'd be in the natural USA made toys market setting up a company of quality. The time is ripe for this!
