Customer Review

on July 15, 2011
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.
