Ok, first and foremost, someone had apparently placed a "This rumor is NOT true" comment on my original post. I did NOT say Webkinz charms contained lead. I said that SOME of Ganz childrens jewlery contained lead. And this IS true. I have no reason to make this up. I read through several news sites every morning. Any story which mentions potential harm to my children gets my full attention. While there was NO LEAD FOUND in Webkinz Charms, there were issues with other Ganz jewelery products and most of their products had been put on hold until testing could be completed. Don't tell me the 'rumor' isn't true.

From Consumer Reports: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news0...2/vt_lead.html

From Vermont Public Radio: http://www.vpr.net/news_detail/78553/

From Vermont State Government: http://www.vt.gov/portal/government/...e.php?news=157

From Kloster Trading: http://klosterstrading.com/reports.aspx

From the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/13/bu...=1&oref=slogin (you'll have to read through the a good bit of this one to get to the details on the jewelry)

And, finally, to assuage fears over Webkinz charms, this one is from Yahoo! Answers: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...4202631AAml7wZ

Webkinz jewelry has been tested and found safe. HOWEVER, there were concerns about Ganz childrens jewelry and NO ONE is going to tell me it was an untrue rumor.

I can provide MORE links to this information if anyone needs further proof.
Well first of all the "someone" who wrote that your last comment wasn't true is a mod and they have every right to do that. Second of all this post ia about the CHARMS not Ganz jewlery so why even bother posting this if it has nothing to do with the topic?
