It's hard to say a 12 year old is not going to have contact with a Halloween prop. So my question to vendors is how do you deal with the new CPSIA laws?

Isn't the standard whether the product was 'designed for' children 12 and under?

Here is the kicker
We dont make products for children. nor do we make toys.
So it does not apply to us.
the following is a cut and paste from one companies document showing compliance. It also shows we do not need to comply. Also in the future please do not use the words "how do you get past...ya da ya da ya da " It makes it sound like we are skirting laws. This is especially frustrating when those laws do not apply to us.
