American Made Toys Hard to Find

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- New tips for holiday toy shopping, but they may be hard to follow.

After a long list of recalls, consumer groups urge shoppers to buy American made toys to be safe.

KNDU randomly picked 15 toys Friday at Toys-R-Us, not one of those 15 was made in the U.S.

That makes it tough to follow the rules many consumer groups are putting out this season.

Urging worried parents to buy American made toys if they're worried.

Shoppers KNDU talked to say toy safety is definitely on their mind, and shopping for those homegrown toys is tough if not impossible.

"I prefer to buy american made things anyhow, but i mean there isn't a lot out there," said mother Shannon Keller.

"We've also found it's pretty hard to find where it's made from until you get the box open, but we do, that is something we've considered," said Carl Reda, a father. 

KNDU checked toys in all sections, including educational toys, none of the 15 toys randomly surveyed were made in America.
