  • Toy Maker's Insurance

    Curious... I was thinking about making some toys, puzzles specifically for working with some Autistic children and children with other learning disabilities. A doctor friend said that he would be interested and it could be a nich in the market if done right. However, a lawyer friend said that I would need probably $10K or more insurance a year if I put my name on them and sold them for use with children!!! How do you other scrollers that make and sell toys and puzzles get around the libality issues concerning injuries or choking hazards from your products?

      You will also should comply with the Federal toy safety rules found here:

      There are numerous threads about these rules on this forum.

        Thank you Jim and Scott, for your inputs. Looks like I have more investigative work to do and some thinking to do about this venture. I appreciate your inputs though.

          In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

          Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.
