This review is from: Eco House (Toy)
My main objection here is that the label "Made in China" was hidden in an obscure way on this product. I had to open the box in the toy store to see where it was manufactured. This is deceptive in my book. For those who care where their toys are made I did my research and I am not comfortable with the level of inspections done by hired 3rd parties in China. If you google healthy toys you can find how many toxic toys the government has overlooked that are imported into the US. For example Learning Curve Thomas Train toys are made in China and in 2009 tested very high for lead and bromine. Many companies have turned to cheap foreign labor for manufacturing that is free from environmental regulation. This needs to stop and I am voting with my dollar. I buy from responsible toy companies that own their own factories and have a permanent presence there and utilize renewable resources as well as non toxic paint and glues. My research has led me to Plan Toys in the U.S., but also Pintoy and Voila are great though are available to mostly European consumers though sometimes Land of Nod will rebrand their stuff as its own and sell it here like the Pintoy firehouse.

Speaking of typos... Anyhow, I suspect this review was submitted by a competitor. The product is manufactured in Thailand, not China, and it's just fine. And those are definitely some obscure awards... like Parenting Magazine, which had a readership of over 9 million people...

You need to do your research before snarking. I am a consumer and a parent. I opened the box to this item in a toy store and it said "Made in China" on the item. Therein lies the deception. Perhaps it is designed in Thailand but it definitely said "Made in China" because it said it on the item. Are you an evangelist for this company???
