comment What kind of plastic are LEGO bricks made of?
It's also worth recording that most clones are polystyrene, which is roughly half the cost and can't be made as elastic as ABS.

ABS is not just one plastic: it is a copolymer and is extremely customizable by varying the inputs. There are frequently used commercial formulations though.

Magnets, pens, watches and such have been made in China. These parts are sometimes different plastics from the rest of the line. Collectible minifigs also say Made in China.
