My previous post, "Could you go a day without products Made In China?" dealt with China's enormous manufacturing capability.
This is especially true for toys. Check out these maps (from Alex at Kango) that scale a country's size according to the value of toy exports and imports.
Notice that China (along with Hong Kong and Taiwan) fill the upper-right quadrant. Germany, Italy, and Mexico are minor players. North America, South America, and Africa barely show up.
And who buys these toys? As you would expect, the United States and the countries of Western Europe lead the way. Australia is also a large importer.
