The ladies at Cool Mom Picks have already written about this topic, so just head over there for more information. The upshot is that come 2009, folks who make toys and other items for babies and kids in the United States are going to be burdened with ludicrous and hugely expensive product testing requirements. Unless this legislation is changed, I’d be willing to bet that almost all handmade sellers in this category will be driven out of business. This is a tragedy in the making.
