The Chicago Tribune conducted some lead testing in toys. I’m not sure how these things sneak into the country, obviously the testing agency are idiots or maybe someone isn’t telling the truth when reporting the lead contained in each toy.
If you are really concerned, Consumer Reports has a list of some home lead-testing kits that you can purchase and how well they work.
Also, the DailyGreen has a list of 250 lead-free toys. I can’t believe you actually need a list!
Thinking you should ban Made in China toys from your house? Well, Palm Bay, Florida is trying to ban all made in china products from the entire town. I doubt it will succeed but it will be interesting to see how far this goes.
