"(idiomatic) Of poor or low quality." Needs citations that do not primarily fall under the other two senses, viz. "Cheaply manufactured in East Asia" and "Manufactured in the People's Republic of China". Equinox 18:42, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

One cite comes up at google books:"look like they're made in China" which subsequently explains itself in the next sentence in such a way that I think it counts. google books:"crappy made in China" and google books:"crap made in China" seem to rather fruitful collocations of this sense. Clearly, the writers don't care about where the plastic crap was actually made when they say that. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:07, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Based on those citations, I've combined to two non-literal senses. —This comment was unsigned.
