The survey of 2,565 U.S. adults conducted between October 9th and 15th found that one third of Americans plan to buy fewer toys this holiday season, 45% plan to buy fewer toys manufactured in China, and 40% plan to buy fewer toys from brands that have been recalled.
The impact was higher in higher income groups, with members of households with incomes over $50,000 a year significantly more likely to reduce toy purchases over-all, purchases of toys made in
, and purchases of toy brands that have been recalled than members of households with incomes below $50,000. China

The fact that the fish de-boning toy made it on the list is simply the author revealing his city-boy roots. It would probably become a best seller if Wal-Mart were to carry it.ReplyDelete
