Exclamation Unanswered: More lead paint? HELP!

My sister came to own 2 new webkinz collectible necklaces.. they have a sort of charm thing on them that clearly has paint on them, I want to be careful for me and my sister.
Does anyone know if it had lead paint on it? (the blue one that says webkinz)

I heard somewhere on here that they did have lead paint;but not enough to make you sick and they just discontinued them because people stopped buying them because they thought it was like with toys a couple of years ago.

Actually, I think your necklace and charm bracelet are quite safe. They are white metal and not painted. If there is any lead in the metal, it's in the metal and imbedded. If you were to swallow any of it it would be passed through you, much like a paperclip or penny if you swallowed that.

The charms were the issue--they were painted (at least some of them, I was told), with paints containing lead. We don't do this in the US anymore, as there are safer paints, and if you contain significant quantities of lead-containing paint, it can make you ill. Small children have gotten sick from putting lead-containing paint in their mouths such as that peeling from the walls in old houses painted years ago, before the restriction. But that's large quantities. If you have any charms, I'd enjoy them too. Just don't put them in your mouth and don't leave them where small children could get at them and possibly do that. There probably isn't a significant amount of lead in the paint on one charm to cause harm...but it's better to err on the side of caution and be careful with the charms.

I think they're safe... I only heard that traces of lead were found in the charms...

A store by my house had the bracelets/necklaces on sale for only $0.05! So I ended up buying 50 bracelets and 50 necklaces LOL

If you check with Snoops.com you will find that there was never lead in the paint in the charms. It was a rumor that got started. There was never a recall of them either. It would have been all over the news with the number of children playing with them for safety reasons. For some reason Ganz just chose to quit making of them except in the e-store. I would go ahead and play with them as much as you like.

If you read the answer it says that they do NOT have lead paint in them.

Actually Ganz themselves had to admit they did indeed have lead in them {because of the pewter and all}. They recalled them, for whatever reason, but because of the lead that they said tested 'within' limits yet others tested over limits. At this time, unless you get them off ebay or where ever you can't get the charms anyway. The necklaces and bracelets are made of different material and therefore have not been a problem as far as lead and such.
