I believed many of you would have read or heard about the recall of toys made by Mattel.
I remembered clearly during my childhood, memories of Mattel Toys like He-Man, Hotwheels…etc filled my days with endless joy and fun.
In the past, we have never heard of anything that got recalled, especially toys. I probably even "chewed" on some toys thatwere made with pure lead!!! *Just kidding!
Look at it this way. Mattel made their own toys in the states during the early days. When China became a cheaper choice for labour,
things like this are most or less expected. Just look at the shady food industry in China, look the quality of the goods and cars made byChina. I can’t believed we are moving backwards. The shoddiest China-made goods with a "Foreign" brand tag is all over the world today!
Mattel should just shift their production plant to elsewhere but China. Saving on labour is essential to any businesses, but not on the risk
and lives of the consumer.———————————————————
