I think for the most part they are lead free or w/in range.
Here's a website that says she called them and was confirmed that on the phone w/a rep. Hopefully that is true. We have a bunch of their blocks and puzzles, play food and ... I can't remember. Some other stuff too. I do like their stuff, but be careful - some of their stuff isn't MIC and some is. hth!
Until recently, all I had heard was that although some of their toys are made in China, they do independent testing and do not put out dangerous toys. The other day, however, right here at MDC, I came across a link for a 2006 European recall of one of their toys (a wooden shape-sorting clock, which we had and have since tossed).
I REALLY don't like their stuff. We had several things when ds was younger, back when I thought any wood was better ( wrong!) and the paint chipped off almost everything. I don't care if its lead or not- that is really bad imo for a kids toy.
