So everyone has about the new Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act, right? I learned about this right before Christmas and it is just so depressing.

Basically, unless it is amended, the current act will likely put small businesses out of business and make handmade toys unavailable for sale.
Don't let them throw the baby out with the bath water! Save handmade toys!
