Toys That Have Been Recalled

Aug 27, 2008
Toys were created to brighten the day of innocent children of all ages. As many people know, there is a vast variety of toys that these youngsters play with nowadays. However, many people also know that not every creation in the factory was kept in stores for very long. Although it is unfortunate, it is true that some toys were considered very hazardous to children. Here are some up to date occurrences of recalled toys.

In the category of learning toys, Fisher-Price, of East Aurora, NY, is voluntarily recalling about 15,000 Learning Pots & Pans Toys. Missing screws in the blue toy pan can cause the clear plastic cover to come loose and release small balls, presenting a choking hazard to young children. Another incident includes Atico International USA which has recalled about 124,000 Signature Gourmet and Crofton Personal Blenders. While placing the cup on or off the base of the blender, the blender can be turned on by accident, activating the blade. This can pose a serious laceration hazard to consumers.

Those were only a couple of examples of toys that have been recalled. In collaboration with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Earthentree of Kirkland, Wash., is now willingly recalling about 375 Wooden Toys. The recalled toys are full of small parts or can break into small parts, posing a choking hazard. The recalled rattles infringe upon the federal rattle standard. Some of the toys also have a string that is longer than 12 inches, which can become a dangerous strangulation hazard to young children under the age of 5.

Even stuffed toys are being recalled! Daiso LLC, of Burlingame, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 40 Stuffed Toy Dogs. The stuffed toys contain small parts, posing a choking hazard to young children. There sure are a lot of toys that have small parts these days. There are also some toys that can be just as dangerous as choking on those small parts. For instance, Innovage LLC, of Foothill Ranch, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 685,000 "Sky Scrambler" and "The Sharper Image" Wireless Indoor Helicopters. The rechargeable lithium ion battery inside the helicopters can overheat, catch fire, and ignite nearby combustibles, posing fire and burn hazards to not only adventurous children, but anyone who chooses to use it.

That are definitely numerous things to be aware of when purchasing toys for kids these days. Hazards are everywhere! As a parent, it is your responsibility to be cautious and keep these hazards in mind. It's for the good of your own child.
