Despite problems involving Chinese-made goods sold in the U.S., a Chinese spokesperson says that orders for Christmas toys are “up” and that factories can’t keep up with demand. But he also says, “I urge the importers of Chinese toys to come to China and buy more Chinese toys and I wish children around the world a Merry Christmas,” which makes the claim sound like PR spin.

    It is a PR spin due to the fact that all the toys manufactured for this Christmas were already made back in the Spring & shipped during the summer.

    Oh wait ! We’re really supposed to stare straight ahead and give a nodding approval at this announcement aren’t we ?

    I know I’m going to try my best at finding non-Chinese toys for Christmas. I’m not sure about anybody else though.

    Yeah – as if the free-speech-restricting government of China wouldn’t spin a story about their economy to save face.

    And Wal-Mart is lowering the price on 15,000 items.
