ToyTalk owner and editor David Smith talks about Chinese toy production.
"What do you think of when you see the phrase ‘Made in China’ on a toy? If you’re a consumer, your first thought may be of product recalls, and you may even think of a recent story about a Chinese manufacturer using ‘medical waste’ in toys, which is enough to make anyone shudder. It might even make you think twice about buying the toy in question.
It’s not fair, of course, because China is capable of producing excellent products, but this is a question of image, which is tricky."
