SantaWoodShop's Shop Announcement

Dear Friends
Thank You for your support in 2009 and the wonderful feedback you have provided about my toys. I especially enjoyed the photo's of your children with their toys. The smiles tell the story. I look forward to serving you in 2010. 2010, my, my, where does the time go?

CHECK OUT THE NEW STUFF. Look for "NEW Item" in the title. I usually have larger quantities of what I make in stock. If you need more than one of an item let me know and I will create a special listing just for you.
My toys are still for sale.
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, which requires testing and certification for all items manufactured for children 12 years old and less has been delayed for implementation has been extended now until Feb 2011. This means that I have at least one more year to sell my toys while the Consumer Product Safety Commission rethinks thier legislation. For the time being I will still carry the toys that are highlight painted as I know the paint is non-toxic. If the law ends up saying only natural materials, I will eliminate all painted toys.
We still have hope for some kind of exclusion for handcrafted items or at least handcrafted items made with natural materials that could not possibly contain lead.
A hunting friend of mine told me the only lead you are going to find in a tree is some stray buckshot or bullet from a hunter missing a deer. These parts of the tree would not be usable anyway.
Thank all of you for your support and kind comments about my toys.
