We are thinking about getting the Ikea train for Christmas but I can't find much information on their website about paint, glue or where it's made. We have three of the train cars already and haven't had any problems with chipping paint or anything, but it would be nice to get some kind of confirmation on that the paint is non-toxic. The Ikea train set being so cheap of course has me a little worried, but maybe it's ok?

Great thread with all this information on M&D. We too were telling the grandparents that M&D was a great alternative to the plastic toys they usually get. Hmmm....

You really should check our Whittle Shortline Railroad. They are made in the USA and are gorgeous.
