http://www.handmadetoyalliance.org/Home visit this site to learn more and research for yourself the impact of the new guidlines for Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. It was intended to protect us from the toxins placed upon toys from foreign companies, but instead of being specific they made general sweeping legislation that has begun a downward spiral effect on our handmade toys that are quality inspected and actually have higher standards than our own, to pull away from the American market. It is not cost effecient. I hope that with enough attention given to this Act that improvements will be made to fix this issue. I would hate to loose access to the lovely handmade wood toys from germany.
