34 days before a bunch of small businesses get trashed

I'm sure you've seen the "Save Handmade" movement around. Here is the quickest way I've found to get your voice heard on the issue. Though calling your congress person is always a good option too. If this law goes into effect the only toys that will be allowed on the market will be those with enough money to afford the ridiculously priced and repetitive testing on items. Meaning big business will be the only toys on the market. So basically the very toys that caused so many problems introducing lead into paint to begin with will be the only 'legal' toy on the market. Lame.

We do need to protect our children, but this law is not the answer. Not only will it bankrupt millions of small business owners, it will vastly limit the type of toy and products we can purchase for our homes in the near future.
