US toy maker Fisher-Price said it was recalling nearly one million toys made in China. The company fears they could be colored with toxic paints.
The US toymaker said it was recalling 967,000 toys. The toys were sold in US stores between May and August this year.
"Paint on some of the toys could have too much lead," the company said in an announcement.
A US Product Safety group told parents to "take the recalled toys away from children" and talk to Fisher-Price.
The recall included around 80 items, including toy cars, dolls and musical instruments, many connected to the Nickelodeon children's TV network.
Fisher-Price, owned by Mattel Inc., said the toys were produced by a single company in China but did not give the name or location.
Several weeks ago a US toy company recalled wooden "Thomas the Train" figures which were also made in China and painted with lead paint.

Russian scientists are poring over the stunningly well-preserved bones of an adult woolly mammoth that roamed the Earth at least 10,000 years ago, after local inhabitants discovered its remains in the shallows of a north Siberian lake. Part of its skull, several ribs and foreleg bones, some with soft tissue still attached to them, were retrieved from Russia’s remote Yamal peninsula above the Arctic Circle on July 23. Scientists are still searching the site for other bones. Similar finds in Russia’s vast Siberian region have happened with increasing regularity as climate change warming the Arctic at a faster pace than the
