Synopsis: All parents want to make sure that the toys they buy for their children are fun, well-made and, above all, safe. Recent recalls of millions of imported toys have caused parents everywhere to be more concerned than ever about products that are manufactured overseas - and the materials that go into them. It is becoming clearer than ever that by buying more American-produced merchandise for our children, we can assure ourselves of its quality and safety. "Made Here, Baby!" is a helpful and much-needed resource for parents who are determined to take control over the kinds of products they give their children. It is a practical, essential guide to more than 400 American manufacturers of toys, games, puzzles, hobbies, sporting goods, apparel, furniture, baby gear, bedding, and other items for children. Complete with personal anecdotes and compelling facts about each company, this book will help parents, grandparents, and relatives find quality, locally made toys and products that are perfect for kids of every age.
