The other day we had a little contest… who could guess the closest Lead reading (in ppm) for what the highest Lead level on this vintage Fisher Price toy garage / downtown set would be?

THE ANSWER: The highest Lead level was 1,959 ppm (in the yellow plastic) and the winner (with a guess of 1,900) was Shannon Dodson! As her prize he’s being sent a set of Lead free dishes for her family this holiday season!

Here’s a link to the the dishes that Shannon won! LINK*

Congratulations Shannon Dodson!

and thank you to everyone who participated in this game!

Here are the full XRF readings for this piece. I am posting one reading set for each color plastic, as it is generally the color plastic that determines the Lead levels when it comes to vintage Fisher Price items.
