A friend and reader recently sent me an e-mail with the following line (more or less)
This has begun to embody my own thoughts about toys. Though I’ve been writing about safe toys for Christmas this year….even some of my recommendations seem scary as I’ve discovered.
...A comment on my Tinker Toys post:
...And, as I suspected…It’s not just made in China that’s a problem:
...And, I knew the US CPSC has only one full time, toy inspector, but felt sure the EU was more on top of things but…nope…European toys may be no safer – T oys sold in Europe have been recalled too not ones manufactured in Europe admittedly….at least not yet.
So I ask you my readers…what’s YOUR plan for buying safe toys this holiday season?
