There's going to be a lot of unhappy children this holiday season.

I swear I'm at a loss now. First I stopped buying the fish from China and Malaysia because of poison scares. Then I had to go through the toys I bought my grandson (none in there thankfully). Now to check all holiday toys before I buy them?? It's going to be impossible. I took one morning and looked around my kitchen. Almost everything is made in China. How safe are the dishes my family's been using for years? Or the pretty painted serving bowls? Or the coffee mugs? Someone should cash in on this and sell an easy, quick and reliable home lead test.

I'm seriously afraid of harming my family (even more?).

I'm right with you Tressa.

Years ago I had some lead testing strips and I've been wracking my brain trying to remember where I got them from but I can't remember. So I googled "Lead Testing Strips". There are a lot of places that you can buy them online.

Here's one........

Lead Test Kits from HomeSafe - Kit 5 Lead SwabsKIT #5 Lead Test Swabs (Box of 16) Save even more. The plastic box holds 16 swabs, test strips and detailed instructions. ($2.19/swab) ...
