The amount of Lead that is considered unsafe in a newly manufactured item intended for children in 90 ppm Lead (or higher) in the paint or coating.
This toy train was likely manufactured before the new regulations went into effect (2008 through 2010). It was mostly likely made in the 1990 to 2010 range, although it was not part of the 2007 Thomas The Tank Engine Recall [LINK.]
As a result of the 2007 recall (and subsequent legislation), new Thomas and Brio trains should all be Lead-free.
Here are a few good choices on Amazon* that I would trust to be Lead-free:
- A Thomas & Friends Set for $29.96
- A Thomas & Friends Super Station for $89.00
- Thomas & Friends Main Page on Amazon
- Thomas & Friends Island of Sodor Play Table
