How do I find a reputable manufacturer for a particular product?

I am looking to launch a line of organic plush toys for kids, and don't know how to find a reputable manufacturer. Are there any agents that help with this process?

Yes, there are agents to help with this process. The challenge, however is that they need to see evidence of volume to "rep" your product.

An alternative is to attend an expo or manufacturer's association trade show with samples of your product and see if you can strike a deal directly. You will be able to track down a list and schedule of these trade shows by accessing association websites.
