One of Ohio’s two U.S. Senators says the recent examples of dangerous toys and other products imported from China can be partly blamed on bad U.S. government policies.
In the past week almost one million toys were recalled. The culprit: choking hazards and possible lead paint. Children’s toys make up 40 percent of the consumer product recall list in the U.S. WOSU went to a local day care facility to find out what it does to monitor such recalls.
While mass-market toy retailers are struggling to boost sales and maintain profits this holiday season, specialty toy shops report the opposite. Indications are this will be a good season for the premium toy business.
