I have a friend who runs a great blog. She reviews toys and gets discount codes for the stores that send them to her. She's not doing any chemical testing of course, but the #1 requirement is that the toys cannot be MIC.

Thanks! I finally found gifts for DS for Christmas.

I think if you buy from a company that gets its components from the US as well they really aren't likely to contain lead. I haven't heard of anything in the US with lead in it... do you have a link? I would be interested to know for instand if the pant they used came from china.

Another reason to buy US is to support your local economy. Always buy local!

They don't mention where the paint came from, but one of the 'worst toys' was the halloween pumpkin pin made in the US. It's high in lead, cadmium and arsenic.

Yes but where the parts they made it with came from are just as important as where it is made. For instance, I really don't care if it was "made in the USA" if all the parts came from China, ya know?

But how are you supposed to know where the parts came from? If it says made in America you think you're safe, but really its no guarantee.

By the way, my info came from an email from the healthytoys.org website. I haven't gone there to find out exactly which toys yet.
