Why Buy Toys Made In U.S.A.?

Buy Toys Made In U.S.A.

As you have shopped for a toy for your child, have you ever noticed where that toy was manufactured? Chances are it is manufactured outside the United States. It is estimated that 75% of toys sold in the U.S. are foreign-made. Why should you care where your children’s toys are made? Why would you want to buy toys made in the U.S.A.?

When you buy toys made in the USA, there are strict U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission regulations in place, to keep your child’s toys safe. Foreign safety standards are low. All toys sold in the U.S. are regulated for compliance for safety in many areas, small parts, sharp points and edges, appropriate labeling, lead, phalates content, appropriate age grading etc. just to name a few. Are all foreign-made toys unsafe? Certainly not, however I recently looked at the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s list of recalled toys. Of all the toys recalled for safety issues since Jan. 2011, all but one were foreign made, and that one toy was listed as being manufactured both in the U. S. and China.

All of Back To Blocks products are manufactured here in the U.S.A. Back To Blocks products are all safety tested by a 3rd party testing lab.Our product comply with all the regulations required by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

We also feel that buying toys made in the U.S.A. will help to keep jobs here in the United States and grow our economy. Since 1975 the U.S. has imported more than it has exported. The US Census Bureau reports that in 2011 the U.S. trade deficit for non-oil goods was $399.7 billion.This trade deficit has result in a loss of jobs for our country. It is estimated that for every $1 billion dollar in goods exported, we create 5000 jobs. Conversely for every $1 billion dollars imported, we lose 9000 jobs. Let’s support our U.S. economy by purchasing American-made toys and other products, keeping jobs here at home and providing safe, reliable U.S. made toys for our children.
