"There's a lot of people out there who aren't too crazy about things made in China. Sometimes they get a bug up their keester because of political reasons, sometimes because they consider the products 'cheap'. As for the first reason, all I can say is: look in the mirror America for someone to blame on that score – we're the ones who transferred all of our production over there! As for the second reason, that's the same garbage I used to hear when I was a kid back in the '50s and '60s when we referred to toys coming out of Japan or Hong Kong as 'cheap'. That's the whole reason our production shifted to China – because it was cheaper to make things over there!!! My take on things as a toy collector is: there's a lot of good quality and innovative toys that have come out of that country. There's been some real crap too but, with the tremendous amount of production, overall the scales weigh in favor on the 'good' side. .."

A nice piece of work. My hostility to China is all geopolitical.
