More News On Lead and Toy Safety

A new list was posted this week at healthytoys.org of toys that have been tested for lead. The group also looked at levels of other substances of concern: cadmium, arsenic, mercury and pvc (polyvinyl chloride). The group tested over 1200 toys and found lead in 35% of them. The website has a lot of information on it that you may find interesting – not clear why they require viewers to register to view the lists. While we are not personally in contact with this group that has brought together a coalition of national/regional environmental health organizations, from our point of view, the more information out there the better. For our list of toys that tested lead-free*, visit our website www.toyportfolio.com.

  1. I noticed that the Corolle Lia doll showed that they found PVC. I thought Corolle was supposed to be phthalate-free. Any thoughts?

  2. Thanks Mary–We have a query into the company. It certainly underscores the issues facing the industry and consumers.

  3. Thanks so much for your efforts to help us moms out…love your book…it’s my toy bible and I’m missing it this year!
