Companys selling toys here should have to (isn't this just totally obvious?) meet our standards...PERIOD.

Companies like matel should have their corporate cojones cut off for importing substandard toys and marketing them.

I am waiting for a toy to come out that will go to work for me, so I can stay home all day, but I am sure those would be recalled.

I've been telling people for years not to buy anything made in china. Haven't we learned from our busted knuckles using their junk tools? What will it take? Should we just watch our children get poisoned by chinese made crap? Haven't we seen enough home fires from their crap lighting fixtures and crappliances? Aren't enough people getting poisoned here from their bogus pharmaceuticals?
We can also thank them for the worlds sky rocketing fuel prices too. There wasn't such a high demand for oil when most of their population was riding bicycles.
It's time for the world to boycott any $h!t that's made in china.

Makes me wonder if Lipitor is made in China, that's what has poisoned me.

I watched a report on the news of a lady who's toddler child was poisoned by those aquadots, and I could'nt help to wonder why nobody asked the lady "So why in the world would you give your little child a plethora of beads to play with in the first place?"

"Are you totally retarded or just plain simple?"

The lady should be "smart smacked" upside the head.

Yea, we should expect that toys are laced with lethal drug and chemicals . This is not a case of incompetence of the parent we should have some sort of assurance that when we have child products around the house that they do not contain chemicals that can harm them, I can keep the choking hazards away but I don't have a chemistry lab at home to test toys.

This makes me wonder why Americans don't just refuse to buy Chinese stuff. Is there nowhere else to get our toys and pet food?

Sure there are lots of quality merchants that sell non-chinese products. Don't expect your local scheiße merchants like Target, Wal-Mart, K-mart, Home-Depot, Lowes, to name a few, to sell them. All they care is to sell you scheiße even if it will potentially harm you.

Trouble is, is too many people with Scheiß for brains are buying those items, thereby creating a market for the Scheiße.
Perhaps it's Darwin's revenge (like Montezuma's revenge). Let the Scheißheads buy the Scheiß, and then they'll eliminate themselves from the genepool.
It won't necessarily be the rich living longer, but it could be the smarter, more quality oriented ones.

I can't imagine anything much worse than trying to save money by buying Chinese made spring compressors!!!!

It would be a good way to get yourself killed
