Kids Only!®, a division of JAKKS Pacific, Inc. just announced this week that they will be manufacturing, marketing, and distributing the original Big Wheel Ride-On toys.

Funny how the production of a child's toy can give me some hope that we will see a trend of more brands coming back to America to manufacture their products.

The State of Michigan has a new site for those looking to do business in Michigan, www.Michigan.gov/Business. It combines a lot of information and forms all in one convenient location. Believe me, this is something that should have been done a long time ago. When we first launched Gift Baskets From Michigan LLC the necessary forms, information, and resources were scattered across numerous departments and webpages.

The new site features -
an array of resources and tools to help you start and operate a business in Michigan. From tips on writing a business plan to financing your business . . . and learn the state requirements for getting started, including costs and time frames.
So, if you're interested in starting a business in Michigan make sure your first stop is www.Michigan.gov/Business.
