Lead and Toy Safety

The world didn't think that much about it at least in the toy realm until RC2 Corp. and Mattel Inc. announced massive recalls in 2007. Now, "lead" is a revived buzz word forecasting danger for young children and signaling mayhem and reform for manufacturers and retailers alike. The presence of excessive lead in children's toys has brought historic fear to present day, ignited media-fueled concern among consumers and corporations, and made the legislative record books as part of numerous proposals recommending improved toy safety standards.

TDmonthly Magazine is committed to covering recalls and issues within the toy industry that matter to its readers. For articles relating to lead and overall toy safety, see the links below:
