another day, another recall

Everyday there is another recall I hear about. How do you find safe toys? The issue is incredibly complicated. What do you tell relatives and friends to give as gifts?

Today we were listening to music in the car and my son said, "Where do they make balloons? In China?" You do know that song from They Might be Giants, right?

I've said much about this in previous posts already. I'd like to point you to a great post at the Angry Chicken. She really delves into the issue and offers some refreshing solutions. A key tidbit she unearthed is that even if a toy says it is made in the U.S. or Europe, it likely has some Chinese components.

Besides, her blog is full of amazing crafts and projects. Unfortunately, I do not know how to sew.
