What do you make? How do you sell?
Crochet animals, fabric dolls, fabric animals – Stock on my website and etsy
How did you find out about CE Testing toys?
Through a toy safety web blog. I first decided not to make toys. Had a few requests from friends so I looked into it and joined this group
Did you have to alter your designs to fit the en71?
The choice of fabrics I was using had a slight effect on what I did. I’m more careful how I make them.
Take your time and don’t be put off. Ask the group they are so helpful.
What are you plans for the future?
I am trying to make myself look more professional and determined to make it more of a business and less of a hobby.
Is there anything you wished you’d know about CE Marking earlier, EN71 regulations or making your own designs and products?
That they existed. That they aren’t shouted about more often.
What do you enjoy most about what you make?
The thought of a child having a new play friend to treasure
Did you encounter any CE marking blocks? (eg denial, material difficulty, money blocks, procrastination or others!) how did you get through them?
Procrastination is something I struggle with. It doesn’t help that I have two young children (one is in pre school and the other in school) that stop me in my flow. Hopefully come September I will have a chance when both are in school.
What item/project are you most proud of?
