If you have a young toddler who is most likely going to put his or her fingers into the mouth while painting, it is extremely important that you carefully read the labels of all the materials and ingredients you buy.
Ensure that the paint is non-toxic, that it conforms to the applicable standards for your region and that it has been manufactured by a reputable company.
Look for the words "Kids Safe" on the packaging. Beware of cheap and poorly labeled products, especially those made in China. A lot of these products are not properly tested and can contain high levels of lead amongst other nasties.Return to Top of Page
