I can’t say that I’m really on the up and up with this yet, but I’ve been reading it on the blogs for a while now. Amy Karol at Angry Chicken has a great explanation of what’s going on with all the toy regs and also some links to help sign petitions and send letters to congressmen and senators. I’ve never actually done anything like that until today.
Something about putting regulations on the whole handmade generation that is coming up just hits me totally the wrong way. There are so many awesome crafters out there, moms and dads who are contributing to the rise of better, quality toys, that it seems so incredibly wrong to punish them because of all the crap that comes from China.
