With the problems of lead paint and many other unsafe problems with Toys from China, shoppers have turned to giving books, CDs, DVDs and video games for children on their gift lists. There are also many hand made toys made in the USA that are back in fashion. Some of the wooden ones are beautiful pieces of art that also make great toys and family heirlooms.
I'd like to compile a list of your favorite toys made in the USA in the comments section here.
My favorite is an education toy called K'Nex:
From the company website: "K'NEX is the next generation of construction sets. It inspires creativity, builds self-confidence and encourages interaction among children and parents. The possibilities are endless! K'NEX Brands, L.P. is a privately held company, with the headquarters and manufacturing facility located in Hatfield, Pennsylvania."
