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.
