Art, already hit on irony of children toys produce overseas getting a pass. Child safe crafts and liability made here by crafters discussed at length year or so back on several message boards. No surprise EPA, green community, states, and parents looking for higher standards and requirements for toys made here.

Looking at prices of certified green seal paint and clear finishes makes me wonder about reliability of testing methods. What liability do manufacturers of green sealed certified paints and finishes have?

Do try to use zero or low VOC paints and finishes available locally for kid’s toys. If use other products. Do read danger warnings on paint & finishing product labels. Avoid products that contain known cacogenic chemicals on labels. Make sure whatever paint or finished used is fully cured before selling.

Cost of spray equipment & compressors getting more economical than spray cans every day.
