Lead-free or not?

How are you supposed to know?

Moms Rising has taken out the guess work, and should make Christmas shopping just a little bit easier.

Healthy Toys has tested 1250 toys for common chemicals and have made their results available online.

But what if you’re at the store and need that information ASAP?

Well, Healthy Toys and Moms Rising have partnered to make that information available at the tip of your fingertips, literally, via your mobile phone.

All you have to do is text, Healthy Toys and the toys name to 41411.

For example, text, Healthy toys Elmo Flashlight , to 41411.

They will reply instantly whether the toy tested “high”, “medium” or “low” for potentially dangerous toxins.

Check out Moms Rising for more tips on receiving the information via your mobile phone.

I received the above information via email from Moms Rising.

If you like this information, then help your children and future generations by signing this petition to demand Congress to make sure our toys are safe for kids ( a no-brainer) and lead-free.

Maybe you’re thinking how can one person make a change?

If you don’t, who will?

What do you have to lose?

Spread the word.

It’s definetly worth a try!
