Save Handmade Toys!

You will notice the cute little teddy bear on the side of the screen. Please click on this and read the story. I'm sure most of you have heard about the government trying to pass a law to make toy manufacturers do more testing on toys. This is a good thing to prevent toys with lead paint like from China entering the US. But it will also have bad affects on small toy makers that make handmade toys. So the little man that makes a few hundred stick horses a year to sale at craft fairs, or the old lady that knits handmade booties to supplement her social security, or the stay at home that makes homemade hair bows for little girls will be out of business. They are making the testing so expensive that these small businesses and everyday people trying to make extra money will no longer be able to do this.

If you care about this matter click on the teddy bear button and follow the directions on the site. We all need to let our voices be heard. They are also not going to allow children toys and clothes to be sold at thrift stores. This is going to hurt lots of people, including me. I get lots of my kids clothes at the goodwill and thrift stores. Please do something. We can't let this pass. Thank you.
