    Ahhh ha ha..... That's silly as heck. Who buys those any way? Guarantee one I use for Grayson to mimic combing and shaving does not have metal clips....they're made for children and babies! Not the bionic man.

    Not adult ones or China made crap. I use baby ones or children ones and besides...not as permanent toy. It's used when I shave and comb hair, he sits on shoulder and mimics shaving and combing hair. When I'm done he's done. When I brush teeth, I set his and say brush beak, and I run it on his beak to clean it. He noted the Britols some times. Zinc toxicoses? Ha ha ha, where the he11 did they but that tooth brush from? Dollar store china? That I would be tempted to believe.

    I was thinking of this and figure the clips must be to hold the bristles before they mold the handle around them.
    Never took one apart before but will later as I use them for cleaning small parts in my shop.

    Ok I forgot then remembered when I was cleaning parts in the shop.
    This is the small metal that hold the bristles after they are pushed into the handle.
    Most disappeared when I ran it through the band saw. there is one left in the blue bristles.
    It is not magnetic so I'm going to presume it is aluminum or stainless steel.

    I then cut the handle apart and found no metallic parts.

    I certainly wouldn't let my bird chew on the bristles but the handle should be good as it is quite firm.

    Years ago on a different message board we followed quite a lengthy thread from an online friend whose Macaw had to be treated for lead poisoning because she chewed on a toothbrush.
