Toy Recalls That Parents Need to Know About
There have been several toy product recalls recently. Here are two defective products that parents should know about as we move into the holiday season. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says that consumers should stop using these recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
Target has recalled children’s frog masks due to a suffocation hazard. The problem with these plush frog masks is that they lack proper ventilation. When secured in place across a child’s face, the frog mask presents a suffocation hazard to the child.
The plush mask is green with yellow and red highlights. There are two eye cutouts and a green elastic band with a fastener used to secure the mask at the back of the child’s head.
The UPC code 06626491474 is printed on a label attached to the mask.
These children’s frog masks, which are manufactured in China, have been sold at Target stores nationwide.
Consumers are advised to take masks from young children and return the product to any Target store for a full refund. For additional information, please contact Target Guest Relations at (800) 440-0680 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or go to Target.com.
Another toy recall is the Disney Fairies Plastic Racing Trikes. which have a cutting hazard. This toy is manufactured by Kiddieland Toys Limited, of Scituate, Mass. which Disney licenses their brand name to.

On top of the handlebar, there is a Tinkerbell figure and three other rotating fairy figures. “Disney Fairies” is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar.
