Oh my goodness......I just had a thought!! After all the hype about the lead poisoning in children's toys from China, etc., I'm now concerned about the Mardi Gras beads I sent to my two youngest granddaughters (ages 1 and 3)!! I don't want to panic my daughter, but do you suppose those were made in China and contain lead? Those two little darlings have played with them for six months! And while the three year old seldom put anything in her mouth any longer, there's no way to stop a 1 year old! Do you think there's any way to find out if they were made in China?
