    I basket weave as a hobby, I can't imagine the amount of time required to prepare the materials and weave those baskets. Now add the hours required to sell all the baskets before these childrens' day is complete. This is the same life for children and adults in third world countries when we buy that cheap basket at a discount store. Baskets cannot be made by machine - they must be made by hand!
