In a previous post I summarized findings from the Public Interest Research Group’s 2011 Annual Toy Safety Survey. In this post I focus on specific toys PIRG found to have safety issues that might be of interest to someone buying toys for an autistic child. You can find the full list of danger toys in PIRG’s full report, Trouble in Toyland.
LL Whirly Wheel (lead hazard)
PIRG’s lab tests found that the whirly wheel exceeded the federal lead standard of 300ppm and had a lead content of 3700 mg/kg of lead.
