This past year has been a nightmare for parents of young children. Every time you turn on the news you see another toy, bed or food recall. With the holiday season approaching my husband and I have decided to try to avoid toys made in other countries. Like many other parents I have encountered, we are extremely disappointed with Fisher Price and other major companies who potentially put our children’s lives at risk to save a few dollars. Here I will list some websites that sell toys made exclusively in America.

www.sensoryedge.com started out as a company suppling toys and activities for special needs children. Since 2003, Sensory Edge has grown from selling just over 100 toys to now carrying more than 2500 different types of toys.
