Traumatized by the recent toy calls, a new survey by online comparison shopping site PriceGrabber among 2,000 online shoppers shows that 69 percent will not purchase any toys manufactured in China
Sixteen percent will purchase products from China as long as the toys are not painted and do not contain magnets. About 73 percent of survey respondents stated that it is important that the products they purchase are made in the United States.
Moreover, 71 percent say it is important to them to purchase ecofriendly products this holiday season. It basically means better business this holiday season for the struggling U.S. manufacturers.
