I agree with mfdr, look for baby safe paint and you won't have any problems.

Just a hint on the krylon fusion, be sure you let it dry for several days (at least a week if possible). Preferably in a warm, dry, area. This seems to result in paint that stays on well. My first attempt at painting tank stuff was only allowed to dry for a few hours, and I am seeing places where the paint is slowly chipping off...but later projects that had lots more time to dry are holding up well.

+1 for Krylon Fusion. If you're painting plastic, scuff it up with fine steel wool so it's not shiny anymore. This will rough up the plastic and give the paint something to grab onto. It won't affect the finish of the paint, but it greatly increases the toughness.
