#XRFTesting; #LeadSafe Metal Toy Tractor

Metal toy tractor, Pb 25 ppm (also tested positive for trace mercury and trace cadmium.)
Exact item tested is in photo below.

These levels for lead and cadmium are considered safe by all standards. I have some concern about the mercury levels in the nut in the center of the wheel. Without knowing the year made of a given toy car, it is possible to have very high lead, however new metal toy cars and trucks that are made as toys intended for children to play with should either be #LeadFree or at least #LeadSafe (below 90 ppm lead.). If you find information about mercury levels that you can share in the comments on this post, that would be terrific.

In general please avoid vintage or antique metal toy cars for your children as they are often high lead, and in the absence of testing it is better to be “safe than sorry.”

Here are some good toy tractor choices for your children:
