    I think its happening in individual families if not on a national basis. My

    daughter is 11 so I wasn't overly concerned for her but then when that whole

    AquaDots thing came out, I realized she could really be injured or worse. That

    is one toy that she has been really bugging me to get her.



    Personally? I will be careful with purchasing items from China, not just toys.

    They need to clean up their act. I don't think its easy to totally forgo Chinese

    made products, though. They are everywhere!

    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="468271616-09112007">No - but I do think we need to be more careful with what the toys are made of and from which materials. I believe with all the recalls and several toy companies getting the shaft and loosing $$ from importing the cheaply made toys (whatever country they come from) they will be more diligent in watching how the toys are made.
    <DIV dir="ltr" align="left"><SPAN class="468271616-09112007">Why boycott just China goods? Other countries are making toys with substandard materials - those toys will be at risk, too.

    I have already started boycotting them. I have told the kids if it's made in China, we aren't buying it. I have researched what they are going to get for Christmas and have made sure, as best as I could,that nothing will come from China. ~Barb F. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ Do you think the people of the US ought to Boycott Toys made in China?

    I read that 85% of American toys are made in China. A

    boycott would ruin a lot of Christmas dreams this

    year! Best to boycott by looking--really hard--for

    American made toys.

    I guess I either dont buy my kids much toys or I'm really careful with all the

    parts and such we have been lucky that I have never gotten any toy from a

    recalled list. But here is the thing even my kids wanted the new aquadots for

    christmas so I would have bought into the whole thing but I saw the price and

    thought what? There were other toys that would occupy their time better and be

    better made without them. I still have stuck to the old fashioned play-dough,

    crayola products. I quite buying all the barbie stuff that had a million pieces.

    I dont think it matters where it comes from but the same thing applies why are

    we buying from them or anyone that pays cheap labor just for a bunch of toys or

    cloths or whatever. I don't condone the whole cheap labor thing to make a buck.



    Donna Winning and loving it.
