Retail web sales for Uncle Goose Toys have jumped by 50% in the past two months. CEO Pete Bultman believes this is because consumers are returning to products made in the U.S. "When the recalls were happening, I got a phone call an hour from parents who said they'd thrown out their Chinese toys," he says. The company, established in 1983, is changing the product packaging on its Classic Alphabet Blocks to more prominently advertise the "Made-in-USA" logo, as well include a link to its website that will outline its strict manufacturing standards.
