another play rabbit
This was the prototype for the play rabbit I showed you a while back. This version has old shoe button eyes which are my favorites. The newer version has safety eyes which are also super cute and are more practical from a toy safety perspective I guess.
Jude swallowed a button once. It was not from a toy but just one he found around the house. It came out without event. I've often wondered how this button eye thing with toys got to be such a big deal. I mean kids have buttons on their clothes, and the world is full of little things kids can put in their mouths (rocks?) right?
Have you been to the Handmade Toy Alliance blog/ website? it's a good place to go to get the latest news about the CPSIA (Consumer Product safety Improvement Act) which sounds like a good thing but is really very problematic.
