I emailed the company about the chance of lead in their toys, this is the response i got, I wanted to pass it along to anyone who is worried:

"Yes, we definitely appreciate and understand your concern.
Please be assured, we test for lead VERY frequently.

It's quite possible to make great quality children's items in China, which meet
all safety regulations, but the key point is that you have to test and inspect
very frequently to be sure that your factories are always following your
instructions explicitly. I assure you that's exactly what we do.

From our experience, the key to doing this correctly is not simply to insist
that your factories follow your instructions, but then to go one step further
and to AUDIT, INSPECT, AND TEST very frequently. That is the most important
part of the process, and it's something our company has always taken VERY

Thanks again for asking, and for your support also.
