1966 Peter Pan brand Christmas record: Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.
Paper sleeve: lead free.
Vinyl record: 3,777 ppm lead.
For context, the amount of lead that is considered toxic in a newly manufactured item made for and intended to be used by children is 90 ppm lead in the coating and 100 ppm lead in the substrate. I personally do not let my children use vinyl records as a result of this, and have given away our entire (and extensive!) record collection.
#SaferChoices: Digital copies of the same music! Luckily in this day an age we can find almost any recording digitally, and if we cannot – it is fairly easy to digitize your vinyl recordings yourself.
