i agree,if its not supposed to be su.cked on like a soother and these kids su.ck on them why do there parents buy it for them?

You ARE allowed to wear them. Just don't lick them or chew them. xD And, after you wear them, wash your hands throughly. Glad to help!

It's a good thing i never bought the charms for me or for anyone, one of my friends puts her charm necklace in her mouth.

So, they stopped selling them because people were complaining about the lead?

Default Re: CHARMS HAVE LEAD IN THEM!!!!

NO!! They DID NOT discontinue them for this reason. There was a HUGE recall on toys with lead in them and yes, the Charms contain lead for stability. PEWTER is whatthe charms are made of and they are a LIGHT weight charm so that you can PUT 24 of them on a necklace. If they were made only of lead, they would be too heavy, combined to wear and DEFINITELY out of the safety standards of limitations.
The ONLY way that a person could possibly get lead poisoning from the charms is if they SWALLOWED all 24 of them at once! Holding them in your hand or wearing them, there is such a minimal amount in them that it is negligible. Ganz PULLED them of their OWN FREE WILL!
Here is a toy safety bulletin issued BY Ganz about it
http://www.ganz.com/toy_safety.doc
Here is an email that was sent to a person here:

I received this email from Ganz today. My question is "why did Ganz tell you the charms did not contain lead and my response states there is lead content?" Lead is harmful at any level besides I don't trust the word of Ganz assuring an allowable level of lead.

Dear Mr.



Thank you for contacting Ganz regarding your concern about Webkinz Charms.



The Consumer Products Safety Commission's proposed rules for lead content in children's jewelry establishes a maximum of 0.06%. Webkinz metal products may contain lead, but in amounts less than 0.06%. Lead is known to be harmful to human health. Avoid swallowing Webkinz metal products. Any ingestion of a Webkinz metal product should be reported to a physician with this information about its lead content.



I hope that this has answered any questions that you may have about our Webkinz Charms.

The symptoms of lead poisoning may include:
  • Irritability
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Low appetite and energy
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headaches
  • Reduced sensations
  • Loss of previous developmental skills (in young children)
  • Anemia
  • Constipation
  • Abdominal pain and cramping (usually the first sign of a high, toxic dose of lead poison)
  • Very high levels may cause vomiting, staggering gait, muscle weakness, seizures, or coma

No but we CAN believe what the REsellers of these items for Ganz were told -- they charms were pulled by a govt agency because they DO contain lead AND too much of it -- and even the new version{s} of these charms are being held overseas because the govt has not determined if these are any safer {even though they went without pewter or whatever it was that had the lead in it, this time}.

You're not going to get sick from lead poisoning just by holding charms. You would have to swallow at least 10 of them to get even remotely sick.
