hey all!!! I thought I would share the email that I just sent to anyone on my mailing list that I thought would be buying for a child. Maybe you can use it to enlighten someone who is buying for your LO.<br>
Feel free to copy and paste!!<br><br>
OK, I am sending this out to anyone on my mailing list who may be buying gifts for children this year. In light of the MANY recalls of toys made in China (MIC) due to lead paint, I have found some great places to buy safer toys. Many of these places cater to tree-huggers, but I figure, hey- consider the source<br>
So, here goes. Also keep in mind that these toys tend to be made in the US, Germany, Denmark or other European countries. Safety standards tend to be very high there, as they are in the US. Most of the time they are safer. Most of the time. I realize that there are some products that may be 'made' in one place but 'assembled' in others, but at least you are more likely to get safer toys this way. Also, you are going to pay a little more for these toys. That is what happens when you are paying for quality. Most of the toys found on these links will last multiple kids. And many are natural wood, no paint at all, some are not even varnished. Just sanded totally smooth.<br>
I hope you enjoy browsing the links, I enjoyed getting them together. If a link doesn't work, please let me know. Also, my disclaimer: I have not bought from these stores specifically, but found the links on my mothering.com message boards. So I don't know where they are shipping from, if shipping is expensive, etc.<br>
Have fun!!<br><br><a href="http://www.rosiehippo.com" target="_blank">www.rosiehippo.com</a><br><a href="http://www.kidbean.com" target="_blank">www.kidbean.com</a><br><a href="http://www.coolmompicks.com/safertoy07/" target="_blank">www.coolmompicks.com/safertoy07/</a><br><a href="http://www.imagiplay.com/" target="_blank">www.imagiplay.com/</a><br><a href="http://www.magiccabin.com" target="_blank">www.magiccabin.com</a><br><a href="http://www.oompa.com" target="_blank">www.oompa.com</a><br><a href="http://www.threesisterstoys.com/" target="_blank">www.threesisterstoys.com/</a><br><a href="http://www.youpayless.com" target="_blank">www.youpayless.com</a><br><a href="http://www.ourgreenhouse.com" target="_blank">www.ourgreenhouse.com</a>
