Maybe it will be good, but I think it will be a passing fancy. Once the recalls are over, and the kids see the toys advertised on TV, parents will be buying them again and giving up the wooden toys.

I would hope this would bring a revival for all things wood made here, but again that is not likely to happen. Price will win out after awhile, and people will go back to buying things made overseas once again.

I do not mind imports, as there are some fine made things. I just think one day we will wake up and realize we are not able to build anything ourselves, as we have forgotten the skills and lack the tools and materials to do so. When that happens, the prices will probably start to skyrocket. Lots of demand, limited supply..up go the prices.
