    I don't know if this should go here (Toyark if moved), News, or General Discussion but I found an article on MSNBC about the cost of toys going up 10% starting next year because of the increase in testing caused by the Mattel lead paint recalls. They are basically saying this will be for all manufacturers and retailers. Here's a quote from Toys R Us.

    Other factors mentioned in this increase are higher resin costs, electronics, and higher wages for a shrinking labor force in the southern region of China. In other words expect collecting to get a little more expensive next year. This could really be a problem for those that do a lot of collecting.

    Safe toys to cost more — but not this Christmas
