12,000 Disney Fairies Plastic Racing Trikes Recalled
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Kiddieland Toys of Scituate, Massachusetts, have announced a recall of 12,000 Disney Fairies Plastic Racing Trikes due to a laceration hazard. 9,000 Disney Princess Trikes were also recalled in April 2011.
Several plastic fairy figures stand on the top of the handle bar which poses a laceration hazard should a child fall on them. The company and the CPSC have received one report of injury to a 3-year-old child who suffered a facial laceration near her right eye.
The Disney Fairies Plastic Racing Trikes are green and purple with a white seat and yellow wheels. There is a Tinkerbell figure on top of the handlebar and three other rotating fairy figures. "Disney Fairies" is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar.
This toy was manufactured in China. Disney had licensed the use of its name to Kiddieland. This recall does not include the new model Princess Trikes. The Disney Fairies Plastic Racing Trikes were sold at Target stores throughout the U.S. from July through December 2009 for about $50.
Parents should immediately remove the trikes from childrens' access and contact Kiddieland for a free replacement handlebar with an enclosed rotating display. Consumers may contact Kiddieland at (800) 430-5307 or visit the firm's website athttp://www.kiddieland.com.hk
