DID YOU KNOW THAT ON FEBRUARY 10th, BASICALLY ALL SMALL, MEDIUM, MOM AND POP, STAY AT HOME MOMS, AND EVEN SOME LARGE TOY MAKERS WILL BE OUT OF BUSINESS?!
Yes, that is right... After Feb. 10th, my Jumbo and Mini Rainbow Crayons will be concidered "toxic" and "dangerous" to kids since I do not have between $500-$2000 to get each crayon style and size tested for lead. This also means that my fiancé's mother can no longer sell her American Girl Doll clothing, plushies, and other things she makes for kids.
No more craft fairs.... no more natural, handmade toys and educational items for your young ones...just what you can find at WalMart and other big companies (which will go up in price as well). All because of the CPSIA (Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act).
They have no idea what they are doing to "small people" like those on Etsy and small time craft fair sellers. PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS SITE or click on the bear to the left of my blog. COMMENT BELOW AND SPREAD THE NEWS!
This is really sad news.
1. Because I am finally earning a living and making a huge business out of selling my popular Rainbow Crayons.
2. Sooo many people want natural toys that are made by hand and made by REAL people and artists.
3. I will not be having kids for quite some time and want to still be able to buy some of the following products on Etsy . I do not have space to buy tons of kids toys and wait 10 years to have kids to use them....
In 2 months, these wonderful things will be BANNED unless tested for lead (every button, piece, part, style, type...)
