Help Save Handmade Toys in the USA from the CPSIA
How truly sad that my little hand stitched finger puppets will be ILLEGAL to sell come February 10th. It is not because they are unsafe, but because I am not able to afford the costs of the expensive 3rd party testing required by the new CPSIA law.
This affects not only children's toys, but ALL items made for children under age 12! If you crochet baby booties to sell on Etsy - you are affected! If you make hand bound journals for pre-teens, you are affected!
