TBH I worked in far worse conditions in the US. These places at least look clean. I worked in a plastics factory in college, and the conditions were afwul. Actually there were alot of molding and painting simliarites between the two factories, except the one in China looked like a clean operating table compared to the US factory. For reference I worked there about 13 years ago, so it wasn't that long ago.

Pretty much handwork involved. One would think that a 'big machine' took care of it all. But labor have been cheap for along time in China, but not anymore.

Popular today I doubt that. And it’s only dying by the day. Holding onto your pathetic childhood memories holding on to a specific time is only holding you back from Experiencing the most out of life. Don’t take me seriously The profits have spoken.

Cost effective chinese, from rice paddies to factory-'workers',in exchange for paper to exchange for rice, no net difference, when you see someone with millions/billions of exchangeable paper (="money"), then be SURE that the mugs (= "workers"), are getting LESS paper for their slave-tasks (= "jobs"), which is equal to under-paid (= modern-slavery), Isnt this SO clever? Communist (=forcable corrupt practices, benefits enjoyed by the FEW at the pyramids-top), with a Capitalist "face". usa is NO different, "free" society (= Controlled by organised-corrupt DEBT economy/Debt-slavery), and the world moves round., all by corrupt controlling private bankers (= Wankers). Yes scale-slave-lectric a fun product See how Happy (= Not), the slaves (="workers"), 'are' hmmm.....

I always just love how they claim China has effective labor...English translation is $15 per hour in the US and .25 cents in China. Yea you think you can bring back sold out American companies to America and be competitive - well then you had better check what you are smoking I think it has gotten old...in other words they should have never left for 3 world contries

I LOVED these as a kid. Unfortunately you can't find these in stores in the states anymore. Toy stores are for video games and drones anymore. Online they can be found but are VERY expensive.

My parents neighbors wife used to work at the Topper Toy Company in Elizabeth, New Jersey. She was always bringing me home toys to play with. Good old " Made In The U.S.A." The toys were of good quality. I just wish I had them again. I see on eBay, some of the sellers are asking a small fortune for the toys.

Jobs will return to usa, as soon as you agree to slave for 12-14 hours per day at chinese salary levels, whilst disbanding all unions, rescind strike rights, and bend over for the jew bankers that own the american currency system that THEY OWN (including owning You), then and only then will "jobs" ...read profit-function for factory-owner thats borrowed jew-owned dollar-"money". (=paper and ink), . So smile, vote in your rigged/fake elections, eat burgers, drive overpriced cars while your land is pillaged and robbed, til the new worlds order is in place, as your forced debt-based economy ravages all in its path., thereby making the Roschilds bank in england that OWNS the very earth under all og "usa" richer beyond even their own Zionist dreams. Americans the worlds Most manipulated society allows its children to be sent to be killed in Devised Wars to enslave others in the name of "democracy!"

Brad Williams (1 month ago)
Sammy 750 My parents bought me a Scalextric slot car set for my birthday in 1976. I actually went to the trouble of hand painting the drivers helmets with the design of the driver who was driving that particular model car. Though I do say so myself, the attention to detail is fantastic. The two that I'm most proud of are Clay Regazzoni in the BRM and Patrick Depailler in the Tyrrell. I also did Emerson Fittipaldi in the Lotus 72, Jochen Mass in the McLaren & Niki Laura in the Ferrari. I will endeavour to post a video on YouTube showing them soon.

I try not to buy name brand items that are now made in china. Little "c" was intentional.

bryan chiew your sarcasm is noted and will be given the appropriate attention which is to say none other than to remark on it. and oddly enough I do the same thing with politicians.
Panpy Pie (1 year ago)
why? items made in China are of low quality and you want to belittle people there by typing a little "c"?
Littleboy & Fatman (1 year ago)
Hey look everyone! This guy made the uppercase letter in the word China into lowercase just to show his feelings of injustice! Wow, what an effective method of protest. The next time I want to show my dissatisfaction at a particular politician, I change his initials into small letters, that'll surely get his attention then!
Stinky Crayons (1 year ago)
Hate how the announcer says "of course it's China" as if they had no choice. They CHOOSE to use slave labor to make their products. Look at that are they even wearing respirators? They look like simple dust masks. Nor are they wearing gloves or protective suits. Unbelievable.
Littleboy & Fatman (1 year ago)
Oh stop whining please, this is what happens everyday. Hey, at least you got your eyes opened a little wider this time? Don't let the wind of injustice leave it dry

Hey! It says Carrera in big fat letters! Biggest German leading brand of model racing, not like the over-priced Scalextric, and again, the crap we are watching here is all made in bloody China. The only way to stop this is to boycott everything made in CHina. You'd be surprised how little you will be left with!
