There have several cases before of toys containing lead. And lead is a poisonous chemical compound. Do you make a habit of reading the labels and checking if what you're purchsing is safe for your little ones? Do you check if its free of harmful substances? Do you check if it's age appropriate? I say, we parents should all be vigilant about this. This is a very good way of avoiding accidents. And we always have to be very careful of what we give our children. Prevention is always better than cure.
