If you're talking about extracting, for example (as it's here in the room - kids toys are everywhere), a toy that has been manufactured, like a Mickey Mouse toy - or any toy to be honest - you will have a hard time getting permission to extract it and then sell it (which is what is being done if you're selling a kit). Toy manufacturers usually trademark their toys to ensure knock off versions aren't resold - and extracting and repacking in a kit would violate their trademark restrictions. Keep trying with the manufacturer - but there's no "quick way" to get permission - hope that helps!

Look For Copyright Symbol on Tags or Embossed Labels. If it has a Copyright Symbol don't waste your time trying to get permission.

Thank You Jen for answering her question.
