    Hi. I think there is thread but I cannot find it but I'm wondering about taking some maracas with me to Cabo. They will be my escort cards, but today the mail lady told me that if any items are "made in china" the Mexican officials will confiscate. I'm stressing now. The marcaas I bought from OTC are made in China.

      I heard this too and I got some fans with "made in china" stickers on them, I just removed the stickers and will hope for the best!! Are they imprinted with "made in china"??

        If they imprinted could you take a marker & cross it off?? I'm guessing they are colorful & fun, so a stroke through them would probably not look out of place, especially if it is written small & somewhere inconspicuous (sp?). Or if it's on the handle, maybe you could wrap the handles in string/rope/something to hide it?

          Yeah my WC told me to remove any stickers that say Made in China, as for other products that have the imprint -- I would bury those in some luggage with clothes or other items. Maybe with your undies? lol

            Dont stress yourself out. like Marie said i would burry them in luggage. and if they do confiscate them than you can always buy them in Mexico.

              i can't imagine how they'd know the items were made in china? you said you heard this from your mail lady ... MAIL to mexico is an entirely different story (i've been told not to even bother trying to mail anything because it will never get there). if you are packing this stuff in luggage i don't see how they could confiscate it. seriously, are chinese PEOPLE not allowed to travel to mexico? most of what they own would be made in china!

                  Let me tell you a little bit on this, you can take made in china items for personal usage, but coming in bulk like wedding favors the custom people thinks you want to sell, and since those Chinese products are high taxed to be imported ( 60-80% from its original value), if you don't declare and they find bulky amounts probably they will think you are doing something wrong...

                  I had buy from OTC , ship the items to Texas and then going personally to pick it up and bring the things with me to Monterrey, and I was kind of nervous, but I took all the marks, mixed with my cloths in the luggage and did my regular custom procedure.....

                  Don't panic just be cautious...

                    Oh okay girls. Thanks for all the answers. I will just wait until I get the maracas because maybe a sticker can betaken off and hopefully the red paint will be bold enough to cover any imprint.

                      as you know, i bought those too, and there is no marking whatsoever on the actual maracas (and you're painting them anyway, so it wouldn't matter if there was). i'm pretty sure there's nothing on the box they are packaged in either, but i could be wrong about that part. just put them in a different container!
