      is the only adult toothbrush brand that I know of which is BPA-free. There are several brands on the children's market. I'd damn well make sure my child was using one of those brands if I had kids.

      On a brighter note, LEGO, one of the most popular toys out there, is BPA-free. Green Toys, an awesome brand made in America from recycled plastic, is BPA-free.
