:: Toy makers need your help!
I'm not sure if you've heard, but there's a movement of citizens inspired by the presidential campaign who are now submitting ideas for how they think the Obama Administration should change America. It's called "Ideas for Change in America."

One important idea that will affect us all is : Save Small Business From the CPSIA. I ask you become a member, to vote and recommend you check it out. Read more and vote for the idea. This law will prohibit many small handmade businesses that create anything kid related from existing after February without paying large sums of money for each of their products to be certified. It is very important for you to know what your government will decide for you and your kids futures! Many retailers will discontinue handmade items due to the crazy testing fees and regulations small manufacturers will have to pay to keep items legal. This will close down thousands of small toymakers across the U.S., not to mention all the Etsy shops, online shops, craft shows and festivals, on and on...

Please help me, Ecoleeko, and many other companies from disappearing. We all need your help!!! Please also visit and
