#Cadmium: Fisher Price Vintage Little People, Green Man

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.
