URGENT! Toymakers in Danger!

If you make products for children, or know someone who does, please read this article from Etsy about the new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. This act has already been signed into law, and will take effect in February. When it does, tens of thousands of small businesses and sole propriatorships wil be put out of business by cost of the new requirements.

If something is not done, practically all the companies who make perfectly safe toys and other childrens' products will be shut down, and the only remaining companies will be the ones who outsource to the countries who are causing the problems in the first place.

Please act now. Don't let handmade toys become illegal.
