Federal consumer officials are looking into toy warnings from a California health group just ahead of the holiday shopping season.
Seven of the 250 children's toys tested by the Center for Environmental Health contained lead levels above federal limits.
Among the suspect toys are a Barbie Bike Flair Accessory Kit and a Disney Tinkerbell Water Lily necklace.
Mattel says it's not involved, and that it licensed its trademarked Barbie name to Bell Sports for use on the bike accessory kit. Bell officials say the kit dates back two years and they weren't aware it was still being stocked.
Disney says the Tinkerbell necklace passed federal and state tests.
Here is a list of toys found to have high lead contents and where they were bought:
