Links for Safe, China Free, Toy Choices for the Holidays

Posted Aug 26 2008 11:36pm


With over 80% of all toys made in China, I know it’s going to be a wee bit difficult to stay away from Chinese made toys this year. As many popular crunchy toy manufacturers have their toys produced in China, buying only wooden, fabric or all natural toys this year won’t guarantee safety.

Actually nothing guarantees safety but, these retailers, from most of whom I have purchased, at least have identified toys made in the US or Europe on their sites.

Online Retailers

1. Magic Cabin
2. Willow Tree Toys
3. Three Sisters Toys
4. Heartsong
5. Blueberry Forest
6. Euro Toy Shop
7. Moolka
8. Oompa
9. The Playmobil Store - buy direct for much greater selection
10. Lego.com – buy direct
11. US Made Toys
12. Nova Naturals
13. A Toy Garden


Added bonus…If you’re looking on Amazon or in local retail stores, here’s a few links with lists of toys not made in China

USA Made Toys
China Free Christmas
Still Made in USA
Toys Made in America


And just to keep you on top of things…here’s a few informational sites on recalls and topics related to toy safety.

Made Deadly in China
Consumer Product Safety Council


And finally, more ideas from my earlier post on where to buy crunchy toys. Enjoy!


It's nice to be able to add to a post based on comments...Loriasked : how about toys for teens?

Well , teens tend not to have the same issues with toys, though, we all suffer from overexposure to lots of toxic chemicals on a daily basis (don't get me started.

However..what was I saying? Oh yes, I buy toys for teens at these retailers:
