Now, we collect the Thomas and Friends wooden railway train set. Lots of those were recalled for lead, which was in the paint... My guess would be it was the paint on the charms..
I had my kids get lead tests at the dr. office because of the Thomas the Tank Engine stuff, and the dr said that would be dangerous if they were being put in mouths and chewed on.

Everything turned out well though And at least the Learning Curve, which makes the Wooden Railway sets, offered replacement items...which was great because those engines and all are very expensive, lol

They discontinued them because some over-ambitious mom did an at-home lead test and trace amounts of lead were found in the paint. The amounts were well below government standards, but there was such an uproar on the internet that they chose to stop making them. This kind of thing always annoys me to no end. If you have the kind of kid who puts things in their mouth, don't buy them tiny objects. I hate it when people think that parenting needs to be left up to the coorporations and not the parents themselves. Just my 2 cents here.

Why do they still sell them then? Or do they sell online codes? At least the lead can't reach people through virtual charms!

As far as I know, yes.

After reading Kelly's post, I want to clarify something I said... I wasn't talking about just any toys. I definately think there should be the highest standards for safty for toddler toys. I was trying to say, if your kid isn't mature enough to keep things out of their mouths, they shouldn't have something small enough to choke on, so it shouldn't be an issue.
