Great News For Etsy Toy Makers

Check out this Etsy article: Breaking News: The CPSIA Mandatory Testing & Certification Proposed 1 Year Suspension if you are a toymaker or a maker of children's products. when I was tempted to do a cartoon of Giopetto being taken away in handcuffs as Pinocchio looks on, we've gotten a stay of exectution while the government rethinks their policy on lead testing for products that don't even contain lead, like crocheted toys or unfinished wooden blocks.

Many Etsy artisans had already pulled their product lines because they couldn't afford the testing that was to go into law on Feb. 10, 2009.
