Vintage 1975-1978 Fisher Price Bus, mostly lead-free! Bus eyeballs: 35 ppm lead, red wheels, 90 ppm lead (hazard level is 90+ ppm) I would call this one “safe”!
With these vintage Fisher Price toys this is the exception when it comes to lead (most have at least one component that is high in lead!) To see a later version of this exact toy that was positive for a high level of Lead, click here.
The amount of lead that is considered safe in a new/modern item intended for children is “below 100 ppm” in the substrate and “below 90 ppm” in the paint or coating.
TIP: Avoid all vintage toys! (sorry). As a consumer (and without appropriate testing instrumentation) you just can’t know which items are high lead and which items are not.
