Recalled toys sold at Carter’s, Target, Walmart 

Some 587,000 musical wind-up toys sold at Carter’s, Target, Walmart and other stores and online are being recalled because the handle of the wind-up mechanism could detach.

Importer/distributor Kids Preferred has so far received six such reports, but thankfully none involving injuries.

Of course, as we all know, a detached handle could easily pose a choking hazard to a toddler.

The Carter’s®, Child of Mine®, Guess How Much I Love You® and Just One You® brands of wind-up musical plush toys that are involved in this recall were sold between January 2016 and August 2017 for a price point of $11 to $20.

Here’s a list of the recalled products with model number and batch code:

You can find the model number and batch code printed on the smallest white sewn-in label behind the care label.

Here’s what to do next

The remedy here is to contact Kids Preferred for a free replacement toy.

You can reach them toll-free at 888-968-9268 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or via email at [email protected]
