I totally had one of those when I was a little girl! so fun!
I'm sorry to say that PVC is horribly toxic during its manufacture, and frequently contains lead or other heavy metals, as well as phthalates, a class of chemicals that act as endocrine disruptors. Phthalates act like hormones in your body--not a good thing to get a dose of if you're a little one. Current thought is linking at least some of the epidemic of early puberty in girls to overexposure to phthalates in daily life.

PVC is something to be avoided like plague, and certainly NEVER used in children's toys.
