#Leaded: Vintage Fisher Price Little People Boy – Orange

This vintage orange Fisher Price Little People boy doll has a plastic body and a plastic head.

When tested with an XRF instrument the following toxicant levels were found:

Orange Plastic Body

  • Lead (Pb): 258 +/- 21 ppm.
  • Cadmium (Cd): Negative/Non-Detect
  • Arsenic (As): Negative/Non-Detect
  • Mercury (Hg): Negative/Non-Detect

Painted On Hair

  • Cadmium (Cd): 78 +/- 12 ppm
  • Mercury (Hg) at 14 +/- 6 ppm
  • Arsenic (As): Negative/Non-Detect
  • Lead (Pb):  Negative/Non-Detect

Painted On Face

  • Cadmium (Cd): 85 +/- 17 ppm
  • Arsenic (As): Negative/Non-Detect
  • Lead (Pb):  Negative/Non-Detect
  • Mercury (Hg): Negative/Non-Detect

Note: Cadmium is considered unsafe for children at levels of 40 ppm and higher (by modern standards.) I also recently learned that in Denmark it is illegal for any newly manufactured consumer goods to test positive for cadmium at levels of 75 ppm or higher. For recently manufactured toys, lead is considered unsafe (in the paint or coating of a toy) if the level (as detectable with an XRF) is 90 ppm and higher.

Each of the separate components of this toy were tested.

There is no date of manufacture noted on this toy.

Here is a modern (safe) version of the little people toys available on Amazon.
