Does anyone know if the Winkle is BPA-free? The packaging, their website, here on Amazon - nowhere does it say that nor what it is made out of.

I came across this on a search:

Manhattan Toy Winkel: Colorful loops made from soft, pliable BPA-free plastic, are easy to grasp and hold, plus it can be refrigerated it for a soothing teether!. . Ages 0+

Also, there is nothing listed on healthystuff.org for that toy, so it seems to be 100% safe :) I got one for my granddaughter.

The post from T. Glass doesn't cite a source. But I was able to find the following. URL where I found it below the quote.

I contacted Manhattan toys about the winkel. Here is their response.
"Katie,

Thank you for contacting Manhattan Toy, The Winkel is manufactured with PU tubing. As such, it does not contain PVC (phthalates) or Polycarbonate (BPA). In general I can't say that all of our toys are BPA, and PVC free. I can say that our toys are safe and meet the safety requirements that are put forth by American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the European Union (EN71). If you have another toy you are inquiring about, please send me an email and I can let you know if it contains BPA, or PVC.

Best Regards,

Tomeko "

How on earth did we ever survive our own childhood? I cannot believe I survived without a bike helmet, a ski helmet, elbow and knee pads in a world filled with toxic plastic, toxic air, and toxic people.
