Q: I have some dishes marked "Deka Plastics" from my childhood (80s/early 90s). I'm sure other parents and grandparents are familiar with them. They usually had cartoon characters on them, some were a McDonalds' promotion. I enjoyed them as a child, especially the ones we got at Disney in the early '80s when I was like 4 years old. I'm wondering if these are safe to use for my 18 month old?
