QUESTION: Is there a list of baby toy companies that ensure their toys are lead free? - 15 Aug 2007 Victoria, Australia
I was wondering if you could recommend me any baby toy companies that offer toys free of lead paint?
ANSWER: 15 Aug 2007
Unfortunately no such list of toy company names exists so all you can do is to write to toy companies and to the Australian Toy Association and suggest that they put together such a list for their website (see www.austoy.com.au/toy-safety) and also that toy importers and toy manufacturers start to label toys that are "lead-free" or "lead-safe (compliant with the Toy Standard)" according to test results. Sorry the answer isn't out there already - it should be.
