The Indian Council of Medical Research has ordered an investigation into the alleged poisonous nature of a majority of toys being sold in the Indian market. So far there is no enforceable legislation in India to regulate the sale of such toys. It is reported that polyvinyl and painted metal toys are laced with lead that can cause irreversible damage to the nervous system and kidneys and also affect the process of blood formation.
