Wonder Woman Pencil Tin, Purchased New at Target in 2018

Wonder Woman Pencil Tin, Purchased New at Target in 2018

I bought this for my son Charlie at the beginning of the school year. He’s a Wonder Woman fan, loves the color pink and is always drawing with colored pencils (so is in constant need of things like pencil boxes!)

Because this is a new item manufactured for use by children (and sold by a major retailer) as expected it does not have any elements that are generally considered toxic (or I wouldn’t let my kiddo use it!) However it is fun to see what is in it (exactly), especially from an educational perspective.

Here’s a link to this exact item on Amazon*: LINK

If you want you can use this to play a game with your kiddos… ask them what elements THEY think it contains and see how close they are to guessing correctly!

When tested with an XRF instrument this piece had the following readings:

  • Lead (Pb): Negative / Non-Detect (ND)
