As you may know, Customs and Border Protection require online retailers that export to the U.S. to clearly label that product’s “country of origin”. Sometimes though, determining the country of origin can be tricky, so let’s look at a few examples:
What do all of these “country of origin” examples have in common? None of these products can legally use the label “Made in USA”, though many are. Instead, the company might say, “Made in China: Packaged in USA”, or “Designed in USA: Made in China.” But, if the product claims to be “Made in USA”, the company runs the risk of Customs seizing the product shipment, getting slapped with a hefty fine, and flagging the company for greater scrutiny in the future. And, once a company is on their radar, Customs will flag them again, and again.
Whether you’re in product design, supply, manufacturing, assembly, packaging, importing, exporting, distribution or you’re selling a private label product on Amazon, these stricter regulations DO apply to you!
No matter what role you play in the production process, we promise that following these stricter rules and regulations is in the best long-term interest of your company.

Fun is defined as something that provides mirth or amusement. Ubiquitous idioms include the word fun. We had a barrel of fun at the party. He is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. It was fun while it lasted. AWHFY?!
We may think of fun as trivial; something to do after we work. However, it’s important for our survival; when we are having fun, we are happy.
Dads are an integral part of a child’s life.
Research shows that confident dads who embrace parenting have children who show fewer behavioral problems prior to the teen years.
An article in The Guardian, highlights a study that came out in 2016. “A man’s attitudes towards fatherhood soon after his child’s birth, as well as his feelings of security as a father and partner, are more important than his involvement in childcare and household chores when it came to influencing a child’s later behavior.”
I launched Simply Chickie baby and toddler clothing to make people laugh, spread the idea of world peace, and make people aware of what they put on their body.
If you can make someone laugh, that person will pay attention to you.
My most popular romper and the one that truly launched the company, Inside me I’ve got, had a sweet beginning.
