Sorry, I've got to be anonymous and this may sound weird, but I need to know if there are any other people in the music industry that may be interested in this. Please just post their names and I will see if my contact can contact them.

Kinda James Bond, eh?

I have verified Can'tSayYet's identity and this is a reputable request, meaning I endorse it. He is a very high profile journalist in the music industry so any exposure he'd provide would be highly beneficial. Will tweet it too.

The ones that come to mind that have children's wear lines are the following:

Gwen Stefani/LAMB
Sean "Diddy" Combs
Charlie Sheen/Sheen Kidz
Bindi Irwin/Bindi Wear
Bono of U2/Edun has a kids line

And I came across this, though i don't know if she ever went through with it:

<<<"Elisabeth Hasselbeck designing kids clothing line
Tags: News

In a recent interview with TV Guide, The View co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, revealed that she is currently designing a children’s clothing line that will soon be available at Target stores and that she also has a few children’s books in the works. Elisabeth said,

I am working on a children’s clothing line. There might be some onesies available at Target soon. And hopefully, we’ll get some children’s books out within the next year. I may be talking politics and celebrities on The View, but I am a designer and artist by nature.

Elisabeth is married to NY Giants Quarterback, Tim Hasselbeck, and together they have a two year-old daughter, Grace Elisabeth. Elisabeth is currently pregnant with their second child, due in November.

Then there are the two big, celeb-driven stores in L.A.:
Fred Segal and Kitson Kids - does anyone have any contacts????
Also the Little Seed that someone mentioned, Visionary Boutique on Melrose and Flint in Hancock Park (all L.A.).


Then there is a site www.CelebrityBabyClothes.com that hasn't posted anything yet about CPSIA.

If I can think of more, will post.

Wow, here is an interesting article in response to the Stay of Execution. It looks like they are pushing to have Nord replaced. I do not think that would be helpful to our cause for reasonable testing.

Here's the letter those consumer groups sent to President Obama...they are wanting Nord replaced...and of course, to have the CPSC meet most of their objectives...

I found this on cpsia-central.ning.com
on someone's blog...

I receive emails from an organization called

style cafe moms

they put together celebrity gift baskets that you can buy into to have your product sent to a celebrity.

they did one a couple of weeks ago of items that were made by WAHM to raise awareness of the CPSIA - they take photos and do a press release etc of the baskets - they may have contacts at places like Kitson in LA or know how to reach some of the celebrity designers...not sure - just a thought

HILARIOUS!

Whilst twittering about this morning, what did I find but an NRDC spokesperson flogging their all organic onesie? Ever in the market for a great product -even tho my baby will be 22 next May- I bought one. For a buck. Yep, their donations form will accept one US dollar so ignore those suggested donation amounts; they have money so I figure they can absorb the cost since all of us will be going out of business come February 10th. I think everyone should stock up now!

You recall the NRDC don't you? They're one of the parties who lobbied for this great CPSIA law. Considering they wrote and lobbied for the law, wouldn't you think they'd be up on it? Turns out, they aren't. Nope. Their spokesperson twittered:
Quote:
The testing requirements only apply to manufacturers. We’re not a manufacturer.

and
Quote:
The NRDC attorney who worjed [sic] on our suit about #CPSIA tells me the testing requirements only apply to manufacturers.

Ohmigosh! Can you believe it? The NRDC is selling non-CPSIA compliant products! Even they don't understand that as the private labeler, they are the manufacturer! Boy, I can hardly wait till I get mine, I'll bet those snaps won't pass an XRF lead test. Jolly Jolly! I'll bet people will be lining up on Tuesday to report them to the CPSC. So what say all of you? Don't you have a hankering for a lead laden $1 onesie courtesy of our friends at the NRDC?

More here.

I love it! Please post your testing results on that garment...and oh yeah...saw on the other post, that they are using the word "onesie" although it might not actually be that brand...in which case they are also violating a copyright law!

What's good for the goose...if the lead snaps don't pass, I say turn them in...as soon as they stamped their sayings and stuff on the front, they became a manufacturer...same as if I would have embroidered something on the front of same garment...

thanks for posting!

The irony of it all! According to them, then, all retailers are off the hook, since they aren't the manufacturers!

Somehow I don't think you will get your onesie. The website wording says "With your generous gift of $25 or more, you will also receive a free organic cotton onesie".

I think they can do without our hard-won bucks. :)

Hey...here's another group, Greenpeace...wonder if they've had these tested? they do avoid using the trademark name and instead call it an infant bodysuit, but they have snaps on them as well as what appears to be a screen printed design on the front...hmmmm....maybe we should get one and have it tested?
