Lead Laments

A few links regarding the danger of lead in toys:

From the Mayo Clinic: Lead Poisoning

Also from the Mayo Clinic: Are your child's toys safe?

Lastly, from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a list of toys recalled for all kinds of reasons. I lost track counting the recalls based on lead paint problems.

Me too. We really dont buy toys for the kids, grandparents, well-meaning friends do. I just assume lead is in everything and tell my kids not to put anything in their mouths (as if) and to wash their hands lots more (they still get sick though).
Also next time we go the doctor I will likely ask for a blood test to test the level of lead in their blood.
