Do you try to find Toys made in the USA at your local store or online and get frustrated at the lack of products made in America? Do you shake your head in the center of the toy aisle at your local Walmart or department store, knowing that the stuff on the store shelves may not even last for the ride home?
I’m happy to tell you that there are alternatives and you don’t have to be satisfied with giving your child products that may be harmful. Remember the lead poisoning scare a few years back? For those that don’t know about it, several years ago the FDA found dangerous amounts of lead in toys made in China. Many parent’s were horrified, especially by the toys their little infants and toddlers put in their mouths!
Just knowing those dangers has made parent’s more aware of what they are buying for their children. I’ve done research over the years about products made in the USA and have put together a small list of online retailers whose sole purpose is to present you with products that are by an American-owned company.
