Did Mattel just fold and put their manufacturer ahead of their customers?
Am I wrong on this? (hey, it's happened before....)
But if I'm right, Mattel's not getting another dime from me. It isn't just the patriotism issue, it's the practicality... the safety.
If they, as the customer, are willing to subjugate themselves to their vendor on this issue (and apparently pay them for the privilege) , what safety problems are they willing to pass on to their customers (us) next?
I don't want my family and friend's kids serving as their test lab, and I'm sure not willing to pay them for it.
Rant over. I will now go put my lead based paint covered soapbox away....
