I have been looking for a good pony plushy but the ones sold in stores are made in People's Republic of China, given their track record are there any plushies not made in that country?

Well it looks like this Beanie Baby Rainbow Dash was made in Ohio? I think? Maybe not.

I dunno, otherwise you could always get customs.

Unless you get a plush from a custom US maker, no, they're all made in china.

( a quick search on ebay shows all the plushes can be bought directly from the factories even. My 10" legit TY Rarity came right from Hong kong. )

I personally got mine from:

This. Get your plushies from real crafters, they're usually well done, so you don't support a dictatorship where toys are made in sweatshops by people paid a few cents per day.

I hear you, wish Hasbro would not outsource plushy making to some Commies.

Darn someone should go to Hasbro and explain to them why making plushies in People's Republic of China is bad.

even the 4DE plushies are made in China, and based on ones that i got - i would say their tolerances for an acceptable plushie are a bit wide (fabric smoothing up instead of down, leg too thin, muzzle cut improperly: if u want perfection, you're going to have to go with a custom plushie maker... (got mine from amazon)

not that im complaining, though: given the price it is still a great deal... though if u consider the fact they were made basically by slaves, they're still way over-priced
