Handmade toys rock. Let's keep them from being black market fare.


You want the toys the kids in your life play with to be safe, right? Me, too. So toys should all be tested to make sure that they are safe, right? Not so fast...

Did you know that testing of children's items costs about $4,000? If the act that congress currently has in the works passes as is, everyone selling a children's item on Etsy will be out of business because testing makes it impossible to continue to operate their small business. And Tedde.com isn't going to have anything I can afford anymore. :(

Read about the issue and what you can to do help here. Sign the "Save Handmade Toys in the USA from the CPSIA" petition here. Thanks for your help!
