This is a very interesting story developing here, I wish you all the best, Enigma Publius, in the case that this is legitimate. I still am very skeptical with your mother ("Grandma") posting as a believer so quickly with your post trying to convince us of the legitimacy. It only takes one original poster to tell a story, and even though both accounts (Enigma Publius & Grandma) are over a year old, and created on separate dates I am not convinced that the accounts are for two individual people.
I am sure as the story breaks I will be proven wrong with the addition of more evidence, but you even posted yourself, Enigma Publius, that your mother posting is a red flag.
Let's keep this rolling

Reminds me of the time when I was camping and I woke up in the morning to find a van with a body chained to it about a hundred feet from my campsite. I went to take a picture of it and the cop threatened to arrest me for obstruction of justice. So I took the picture from some distance away.
The person who killed him claimed it was self defense and though he was clearly quilty of disturbing a crime scene no charges were filed.
So I sent the picture to Geraldo Rivera with the story.
Murder somebody, throw the gun in the water,drag the body a half mile,claim self defense.
If the dead person is a nobody who cares?Nobody!

I know this may seem a bit unrelated, and obviously it would never stop completely, but as the consumer, we are the ones who have the power in this situation.
If everyone truly cared the way you do, we simply would not buy products we do not absolutely need.
There is no better way to hurt a corporation of any kind.
Sadly, most turn away until it hits home, as it did with you.
My only advice would be to do what you absolutely can to make this story go national, global even(why limit yourself?), and your message could be simply, BOYCOTT. Boycott cheap Chinese toys, coming up on Christmas, that could sting.
Just remember though.. it's a bit hard to stand up for human rights in a country that doesn't really have any to begin with. The people that LIVE in the walmart factories are docked water usage out of their low low pay.
I do not shop there anymore. Does it make a difference? Probably not. But now that I know, I only tell others.
Good luck OP.

China is backward counrty in many ways, the girl looks happy in drawing, smiling, has fan.
If she had time to draw picture, she should of had time to go pee.
Plus she is lucky, I saw on another thread they eat girl babies in China, and in one area I saw on TV last night they ate about 1000 people.
So she's lucky she has not been eaten and still has a job as many of the people out of work have been forced to return to working on the farms.
Once this story gets out she will most likely lose her job.

What I can be sure of is the squiggly lines she drew coming from the crotch of her shorts that lead to the floor and she even tried to point an arrow to the stream and write "PEE" but because she probably has great trouble writing english, she left the top horizontal line off both capital "E"'s, so that they look like upside down "F"'s. The tears running down her cheeks broke my heart. I hear that they do not allow bathroom breaks, so I consider my interpretation to be 99% plausible, and the boox WAS SEALED, and the picture HIDDEN INSIDE THE TOY.
