Advice For Mattel

The Wall Street Journal Law Blog offers some advice for Mattel on their toy imbroglio from an interview they did with Victor Schwartz, the head of the public policy practice at Shook Hardy & Bacon in Washington.

Though I'm not a lawyer, I am a parent, and I've got some free advice for Mattel, too:


You may think it's gonna cost you more in labor, but you're betting against the parents who decide Chinese toys just aren't worth the risk. You'll have to determine which risk is greater in the long run--and particularly whether you want your reputation to be one of safe quality playthings or just cheap Chinese toys.
