: OMG!!

I hope not. I have a bunch of them. My 7 month old plays with some small wooden blocks from M & D. Each block has brightly colored paint on it.

I don't know about the paint but I think they are pretty low quality and chip/break easily (with an exception of the puzzles) this has been my experience anyway. HAba/Plan are much MUCH better quality and they are not made in CHina or use any kind of child labor. Also they use non toxic paint and sustainable rubberwood. unfortunatley I found all this out the hard way as my DS is a little rough on toys! lol.

btw look here for good deals on haba and plan

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!
