Find Out About Yummy Lead!

And Cadmium! And Arsenic! And assorted other YUMMY flavours! This website pictures many toys commonly sold and gives the lowdown on what they found when they tested the toys:

I thought it was a *very* good idea. Why the drugs we take have to be screened and scientifically evaluated, sometimes for YEARS by our government, but the toys our children PUT IN THEIR MOUTHS and chew on do not have the same oversight, is beyond me. I wish the site were more comprehensive and tested toys 'way back to the 70s, because lots of those older toys are still around and being chewed on. We have several presently.
