  • 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?

      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.

          Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

          As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

          The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

          Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
