The hunt for safe toys made in USA

In the past few months many shoppers have decided to buy only toys made in America due to several toy recalls . The recalls on toys made in China due to poisonous lead paint has us all concerned about toy safety. Many parents like my self found their self checking every toy their children own. I personally had to throw out several. with all this in mind I am posting a list of American made toys. These companies offer toys made right here in the USA.

Slinky- The Slinky® is still made in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania with the original equipment Richard James created.

Step2- The vast majority of Step2 products are manufactured in the USA through a process called rotational molding that does not use paint at all.
