Awhile back, I wrote a couple articles (No More Handmade Toys, Save Hand Made Toys) about how handcrafted toys and products for children will be a thing of the past due to the new law that takes effect on Feb. 10, 2009. Well, I’m happy to report a little good news. The Handmade Toy Alliance was successful in raising enough votes with Change.org to be included in the discussion with the Obama administration. On January 16, 2009, they expressed their concern and offered solutions to President Obama’s transition team. Change.org and the Handmade Toy Alliance will be working together to find assistance with an appropriate non-profit group to help further their cause. They have also opened a forum where you can discuss, offer solutions and help further this cause to save handcrafted toys and children’s products. You can find more information at www.handmadetoyalliance.org or join in the discussion at Change.org.
