Not Made in ChinaNovember 28th, 2011 | Posted by in TymeAgain
It’s easy to understand why a lot of companies decide to have their products made overseas in Asia and, more specifically, China. Your product can be made cheaper and can therefore be more competitively priced. The day-to-day operations are handed over to someone else. It all sounds good until you realize the true cost of making such a move.
One of the main questions to ask is ‘who pays the real price of producing your product so cheaply?’. It is the worker (often the child worker) who works for a pittance with no health benefits or job security. And what are you giving up? Control. No longer are you able to oversee all the details that make your product special, to know for certain where all your materials originate, that specifications are being honoured and that quality control is being maintained.
That’s why TymeAgain toys will continue to be made in the U.K. It is where we can maintain our standards, reward our craftmakers well, and access materials from the most environmentally responsible sources we can find. We make safe, well-built toys, and manage their creation from beginning to end. We are proud to make our toys in England, and proud to say that that will never change.
