A Toy Company Made in the USA
May I introduce to you, American Plastic Toys, a company that has been around since the 1960’s. There are so many new Moms and Dads who are desperate to keep made in China products away from their child or children. But finding toys that are not filled with led can be hard to do, especially if you are living on a fixed budget. Even if you don’t have to worry about money, no parent wants to give a child a toy that could possibly include lead in the plastic. That child will chew on the toy and it could cause some awful conditions,even death.
American Plastic Toys is a company that does not use lead in their toys. American owned, they operate five facilities around the United States including some plants in Michigan and Mississippi. The nice thing is they have over 125 different items for children of a variety of ages that are made out of products made in the USA.
A small percent, just about 4% or less of their product is imported, but those are some sound components and some fasteners. They are not painted, so no worries about lead.
Plastic Can Be Deadly if Not Made in the USA!
The plastic that this company uses is all purchased right here in the USA. They mold them with about 80% polypropylene and then 20% polyethylene, which is plastic. They have to use a colorant in the products and they buy this right here in the USA where it is FDA approved.
Where To Find American Made Toys?
Amazon.com, one of the best and biggest retailers online carries many different varieties from the American Plastic Company. They are also sold in stores like Walmart, Toys R Us, Kmart and Family Dollar. If you are starting to think about crowded stores, bad weather and the thought of ordering online makes you happy, then Amazon would be the best option for decent prices and quick service this holiday season.
