Old Toys and Lead Contamination

My mother in law has saved all of my husband's old toys from 40 years ago and wants to pull them out for my 20 month old to play with them. He still occassionally puts toys in his mouth too. Most recently, she's suggested old match box and hot wheels cars. How can I learn more about whether these old tosy may contain lead based paint? I'm trying to be cautious so that I gather the info without hurting her feelings needlessly.
