Host: What should parents look for when purchasing art supplies? Dr. Rene Hackey: When purchasing art supplies, the first thing parents should look for is a regulation, it says ASTM 4236 and it's stamped right on the box of art supplies, that is the government test for non-toxicity. If a product has come in and it hasn't been tested for non-toxicity and receive that parents should just assume that it's probably a toxic product. It may not be but just to air on the side of safety we want to look for that.
