This vintage green Fisher Price Little People man has a wooden body and a plastic head.
When tested with an XRF instrument the readings for this toy were as follows:
Head & Face
- Cadmium (Cd): 160 +/- 14 ppm
- Mercury (Hg) : 15 +/- 8 ppm
- Lead (Pb): Negative/ Non-Detect
- Arsenic (As): Negative/ Non-Detect
Cadmium is considered unsafe for children at levels of 40 ppm and higher (by modern standards.) The green painted wooden body was non-detect (negative) for all four toxicants. All of the components of this toy were tested. There is no date of manufacture noted on this toy.
Here is a modern version of the little people toys available on Amazon.
