You’d think that toy companies would figure out by now that kids choke on stuff. I mean a company like Fisher-Price, they’ve been making toys for how many years?

It can’t be THAT hard to have some sort of quality control department that routinely looks at new toys and goes “Hey, you know, kids have tiny throats. Maybe we shouldn’t put little tiny parts on these new toys cause then we’d have to spend millions of dollars recalling them. What do you think?”

Regardless, Fisher-Price has moved to recall more than 10 million toys.

More than 10 million children’s toys have been recalled by theĀ U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the toys’ manufacturer Fisher-Price, the CPSC announced today. Via ABC News

According to ABC News, the toy giant, Fisher-Price has recalled toys — including tricycles and play places — citing potential dangers from falling onto certain protruding parts and choking hazards from small parts.

“Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed,” a representative from the CPSC said in a statement.

Here’s the list of products being recalled in the U.S.:

  • About 7 million Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles
  • About 950,000 Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs
  • About 100,000 Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway toys
  • About 2.8 million Infant Toys with Inflatable Balls, including the Baby Playzone Crawl & Cruise Playground, Baby Playzone Crawl & Slide Arcade, Baby Gymtastics Play Wall, Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Aquarium, 1-2-3 Tetherball, Bat & Score Goal

  1. They Ruined Christmas!!!

  2. They certainly freakin’ did.

  3. I’ve had both my cribs (different brands) recalled, my stroller, a cloth book, metal water bottles, teething toys and more for a host of different companies, all reputable.
    The problems often happen because the companies test products in ways they are meant to be used. Kids are inventive, and new uses can be made up and those may not be safe.

    Fisher Price is a big company and makes millions of different products. A recall on 3 out of those millions is not a huge stat. What makes it big is that so many people use fisher price (although not necessarily these products).

  4. As a mom, this is really scary! I understand that we as parents are responsible for the safety of our kids, but it really worries me when such huge “trusted” brands such as Fisher-Price make such critical oversights.

  5. That’s my point. These are HUGE HUGE companies. The only reason something like this could have happened is due to inadequate testing probably because they don’t want to spend the money.

    Well, they are going to be spending it now!
