In the process of researching a few of the toys our twins received for Christmas I found a blog post that pointed out a few of them may contain PVC. I figured I should do due diligence to best understand what information is available about "toxic toys". Are there any well cited studies documenting the dangers (or lack thereof) of PVC to infants and children?
What do the studies indicate regarding risks of exposure, ways to mitigate risk, etc.?
The response below from one of the companies in question is a large reason I ask this question.
