Lead Test Results are IN!

All WonderToast products - books & clothing line - are officially CPSIA compliant!  Hooray!

This means that every component of all my products have tested 100% LEAD-FREE! Please feel confident in our continued dedication to the health and safety of all children.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE - Please help keep WonderToast in business by writing to your Congressman in changing the CPSIA laws. As proved by today's XRF gun test results, my products ARE 100% compliant with the law.  However, in August 2009, the testing requirements under this deeply flawed law become TOO EXPENSIVE for me to stay in business!  Third Party Component testing would simply confirm the zero levels I already got, but through a lab that would charge me an estimated $20,000.00 

Help small businesses like mine to stay afloat and continue to provide families with fun alternatives to the boring discount kids products at Walmart & Target!


CPSIA - Fight for the little guy!

Hopefully everyone knows the current struggle of WonderToast and all small American businesses who manufacture for children (yes, even mom'preneurs!).  If you don't, you may have vaguely heard of a congressional law that limits lead content in kids stuff.  Sound familiar?  Well on the surface, this is a great concept, but the law itself was a gut reaction to the import of children's toy parts from China that contained unhealthy levels of lead.  Then they added pthalate limits too (heard of some chemical in baby bottles being harmful?  yeah, that stuff)  Soooo...this law covers every single product, US-made or imported, that could ever reach the hands of a kid 12 and under.  

This includes all products made by me!  The testing required for compliant certification under this law is restrictively expensive (we're talking somewhere in the neighborhood of $20,000 for my current inventory - and this would be an ONGOING cost!).  I can't afford to stay in business past the law's August deadline if nothing changes in the law.  Tomorrow, thanks to a really excellent collective of small Denver-based businesses, I will be doing a round of testing on my current inventory to confirm that my 100% organic kids clothes do not contain any harmful substances.  Sharing the cost for this first round of testing is a god-send!  (please bear in mind that this type of testing is NOT compliant for the August deadline, only the Feb. 10th one!)

I look forward to broadcasting WonderToast products' very safe & legal levels of lead tomorrow afternoon!  In the mean time, please do all that you can to read up on this issue and contact your representative to convince them that changes must be made to make the Third Party Component Testing (Aug deadline requirement) fair & affordable to small business!  
For me and my one-woman show, raw material testing (rather than finished product components) would take the financial burden off of me and still ensure confirmation of compliance.

Please help save WonderToast!  He has many more global food adventures ahead of him this year - it would be a shame to cancel his travel plans now!
