Why dealers continue to buy from China

The pitfalls of China's rough capitalism

GUANGZHOU, China - Ron Rust and Beve Kozub were poking around the toy booths at China's biggest trade fair two years ago when something caught their eye: pouty-faced baby dolls snuggling in light blue and pink fleece blankets, their eyes tightly shut or gazing with a newborn's woozy stare.

The American dealers plunked down $22,052 for a shipment of 2,740. But the lifelike dolls turned out to be knockoffs. Rust and Kozub were slapped with a lawsuit that could have cost them their home in Harmony, Pennsylvania.

Despite getting burned, they were back in China this fall. For new products at the right price, China is "the only option at this time," Rust said.
