Also: keep in mind that many of the parts are very small, so there is always a choking risk for children under 3.

The larger pieces should be safe, of course.

Thanks!

While we can't officially say Dwarvenite is safe for kids (because of the expensive and lengthy testing/approval process we haven't done), I personally believe it is safe enough that I let my own son play with it.
Thank You

Thanks Nate, I took that from your post. I just won't let my boys eat any and we should be good.

I just let my kids go free in the back yard (we have a fence) and put out fresh water and leftover food from last night's dinner every day in dishes on a tray. I think they're ok. The snow outside has started to melt at least. Thank goodness, as they're outgrowing the set of clothes I bought for them 2 years ago.

Wow. I'm sorry, Harneloot. I thought I was communicating politely, respectfully, and tactfully about what could be a sensitive topic. Obviously I struck a nerve with you, and for that, I apologize.

I have no definitive knowledge of any health or toxicity issues related to Dwarvenite, or of any adverse affects on children related to Dwarven Forge products.

You can quote me on that if I ever answer a related question in a manner that isn't circumspect enough for you. It has the additional advantage that it's a lot shorter than most of my posts. ;-)

It's because of people like you that children grow up to be well adjusted "individuals"... you sicken me.
Ah, jackattack, you seldom fail to prove entertaining and/or informative!
