Share the New “Don’t Tax Toys” Video on Social Media

“A tariff on toys amounts to nothing more than a tax on American families, who work hard to be able to provide the joy of toys for their children,” said Steve Pasierb, president & CEO of The Toy Association. “We encourage everyone in the toy and play community to get involved in our grassroots campaign by writing letters, sharing videos, and making your voices heard in Washington. They need to know toy tariffs will hurt American children, quality jobs, small businesses, and communities.”
