1980 Fisher Price Airport.
All components tested.
The only component on this toy that was positive for lead was (ironically) the black gas valve (on the gas pump at the back of the toy)! This piece was low lead (even safe by today’s standards!) at 28 +/- 7 ppm lead (Pb.) The amount of lead that is considered toxic in an item manufactured today and intended for use by children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher. A 28 ppm lead this vintage 1980 toy is well within safe standards! Please note that I would expect this same toy from before 1980 (if it is exists) will likely be positive for high lead in many components.
Tested with an XRF instrument.
