I think that Santa is Chinese.Ninety percent of the toys sold in US are Made in China.
In other countries around the world ,average imports drop last year and this year.


TextWanted: BFF; pretty in pink; not too trashy; lower maintenance than Barbie. Must speak Chinese. Meet Princess Secret, a potential best friend forever for the children of China’s swelling mass of consumers, who increasingly demand better-quality toys at cheaper prices than foreign brands can offer. The doll’s manufacturer, closely held China Focus (Yiwu) Ltd., is among Chinese exporters seeking licenses to sell on the domestic market as overseas growth flags. “Our products probably cost twice as much as those designed for the local market, but that’s not a problem because they’re still cheaper than imports,” Maggie Zhang, a sales manager, said at the country’s biggest trade fair last month, while staffing a stall stacked with Princess Secret pink dolls, gloves, scarves and cosmetic bags. The nation’s toy market is expected to double to 60 billion yuan ($9 billion) by 2015 from 2010, according to the China Toy & Juvenile Products Association. In contrast, overseas sales grew 8.9 percent in the first nine months of the year, lagging the 23 percent growth in total China exports. “Chinese toy exporters are coming to a turning point where domestic growth is starting to outpace that of overseas orders,” said Hua Zhongwei, a macroeconomic analyst with Huachuang Securities in Beijing.

TextImports All Imports: Import prices rose 0.7 percent in November following declines of 0.5 percent, 0.1 percent, and 0.4 percent the three previous months. The November advance is the largest monthly increase since a 2.6 percent rise in April. Overall import prices increased 9.9 percent for the year ended in November, due primarily to higher prices for the first half of the period.

I believe that we are being consumers during this holiday season. I do not buy presents anymore for anyone during christmas, because it doesn't mean the same thing as it once did. I would like someone to try not to give more then 2 presents next holiday season. And after it is done, tell how you felt at that time.

What ISNT made in China toy wise?!

How about what isn't made in China period?!

I am not a fan of Christmas, was in the past but people are too greedy and their true selfish side comes out on Christmas when they didn't get what they wanted.
