We were thrilled to have a feature story in The Sun of Ticonderoga NY. Click the banner above to read the article and interview with Joann Cartiglia by Shaundra Bartlett Yaw.
Posted February 20, 2023
President of The Queen's Treasures, Joann Cartiglia, is on the forefront of adovacy for the US toy industry.
Working with big names like Mattel, Crayola and Play Master, Joann has spent years working on many challenges that face toy companies in the US pre and post Pandemic. 2020 saw many changes, and challenges for everyone. Extreme shipping delays became a constant battle. Joann, and the Toy Association, tackled it head on.
“I cannot express how thankful I am for the advocacy of The Toy Association,” said Joann Cartiglia, president of doll manufacturer The Queen’s Treasures. “After having an already late container randomly selected for an intensive exam, I thought we would have to disappoint thousands of parents and grandparents this Christmas. An additional port delay would cause us to miss our shipping deadline for backordered items. I contacted Ed Desmond, and he and his team immediately sprang into action on our behalf. With the help of The Toy Association and the cooperation of CPSC and the Port of Newark, we were able to get our shipment of compliant, safety-tested toys released. Thankfully, it looks like we will have a ‘magic’ sleigh this year.”
Another constant battle in the world of online retail, is the influx of 3rd party sellers, knock off products, and unsafe toys. We at the Queen's Treasures take pride in our extensive testing of all of our products, and thorough vetting of any wholesaler selling our products.

Nearly 30 toy company representatives attended The Toy Association’s Virtual DC Fly-In last week, where they connected with 28 congressional offices and top federal officials to discuss key legislation addressing counterfeit toys and children’s products sold through online marketplaces.
“Before joining The Toy Association, I felt my little company and voice would have no impact on what happens in government,” said Joann Cartiglia, president of doll manufacturer The Queen’s Treasures and Fly-In participant. “I have since learned that even a company like mine can have its voice heard and make an impact on what is happening in our country. I am so appreciative of the work The Toy Association does to advocate for children, toy companies, retailers, and consumers to ensure the integrity and safety of all toys sold in the U.S. and beyond our borders.”

The Integrity, Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces for Consumers (INFORM Consumers) Act was included in the fiscal year 2023 omnibus funding package, which President Biden signed into law on December 29, 2022 and will go into effect in June.
The legislation establishes a national standard — enforced by the Federal Trade Commission and State Attorneys General — that requires online marketplaces to disclose certain verified information regarding high-volume third-party sellers of consumer products, including those who sell toys and youth entertainment products. The Toy Association is a strong advocate against counterfeit products and has been at the forefront in supporting legislation to protect consumers from illicit goods sold online. Joann continues to participate, and advocate for all toy retailers.
“I want to thank all the members of Congress who supported the INFORM Consumers Act for helping protect small businesses like mine against fraudulent sellers and infringing products,” said Joann Cartiglia, CEO and president of The Queen’s Treasures, who was an active participant in the Association’s efforts in backing the passage of the legislation. “The current system places no responsibility on the seller or the marketplace to prevent or police counterfeits. The passage of INFORM is a step forward in providing small businesses and brands with the information we need to protect our products and our consumers.”

#toyfoundation #toydonation #toyindustry #StandWithUkraine
For many of us, it is hard to idly stand by and watch the heinous events occurring in Ukraine. We all continue to go on with our daily lives unsure of how we can help, how to offer a hand in support. It is impossible to imagine the pain the Ukrainians have endured in the wake of this devastating war with many having to abandon their homes and flee in hopes of finding safety.
Therefore, with the hope of providing some relief, even if just in the form of a child’s smile, The Queen’s Treasures will be donating $30,000 in toys to the Toy Foundation.
Thank you to those that joined with us to donate toys to Ukraine via The Toy Foundation!
