Baby and kid's gift baskets are the perfect gifts to celebrate the adorable
little ones in your life! Our baby gift baskets and kid's gift baskets are
filled with fun goodies and toys both parents and child will adore.
Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), approved in 1999 - 2010, is a
much-needed response to dangerous toys and products that were reaching our
children. Parents and industry groups asked the government to do something about
baby products safety after all of those lead paint recalls of 2007, and the
magnet recalls and the phthalates and BPA and other potential health risks to
children posed by their toys, clothes, blankets and other everyday items. The
government's answer was CPSIA, which is enforced by the Consumer
Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Testing For Lead, Phthalates and More
CPSIA requires companies to
show that their toys and products intended for Kids Gifts under 12 do not
contain harmful amounts of lead and other chemicals, including phthalates. CPSIA
requires that each batch of product be tested, which isn't a problem for
companies that make large batches of clothes, toys or other products. When a
company makes a batch of only five or ten of one handmade product at a time,
testing one item from that batch can become cost-prohibitive.
toy and children's product manufacturers are asking CPSC to consider allowing
them to test their product inputs instead of testing one product from each
batch. This means they could test all of the materials that go into the
products, and then if they use the same materials for several different
products, they would not need to test the same material again. This could lower
the testing costs to small businesses while still requiring that some type of
safety testing was done on children's products.
