Voltron, c. 1980s

Transformer-style Voltron toy, made in Taiwan. Tested positive for lead with an XRF with levels as high as 108,800 ppm lead! #YIKES! Peeling chipping paint and everything!

The current federal standard for what is considered a lead hazard in an item intended for children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher (in the paint or coating.)

DO NOT let your children play with vintage toys like this one!
