Save Handmade Toys!: Relevant Action Needed

Save Handmade Toys

An example of when good intentions go horribly awry. In an effort to make sure that toys are safe, a whole host of regulations covering testing requirements and labeling are currently awaiting implementation this coming February by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Problem is that the regulations will be catastrophic for small boutique businesses, and also make European made toys further out of reach due to specific requirements above and beyond their already stringent restrictions compared to the current U.S. regulations.

Lend your mom voice to urge them to reevaluate key provisions of this legislation that takes effect in February to protect small business people and the artisinal toy market by visiting the action page created on Cool Mom Picks. It is easy, and so very needed.
