Do you care if your child's toys are ethically made?

Filed under: In The News, Toys

I'm a fan of the blog Baby Gadget. It's a great resource for anyone hoping to find toys that you might not see browsing through your local Toys R' Us. In a recent post, they've highlighted Escor Toys, as a company that makes pull-along trucks, counting toys, shape-sorters and more that are "ethically sound."

This was interesting to me, as I've never thought about who made my kid's toys -- only if they were fun to play with, and, hopefully, that they taught her something.

But now that I know that since 1914, Escor Toys has hired people with disabilities to make their traditional toys, should I should re-consider?

What do you think? Do you investigate the companies that make your kids' toys? Do you care?
