In this video, we look at another three toy product recall information released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) over the last few days and weeks:
Number 7: Tough Treadz Auto Carrier
When you hand your child a toy, you don't expect them to get sharp cuts or lacerations. That's why Family Dollar Stores were prompted to recall these die-cast metal toy trucks. Posted on the consumer product safety commission website a few days ago, the Tough Treadz Auto Carrier has sharp edges that pose a dangerous laceration hazard for small children.
China manufactured a quarter of a million of these toys which come in assorted colours and although there have been no reported injuries so far, anyone who bought one should take it back to any Family Dollar Store for a full refund.
Number 8: Airplane and Butterfly push toys
It's their first steps and toddlers love to push these toys around. But when your backs turned for just a moment disaster can strike. Especially if they have access to one of these. It's a Chinese made Airplane push toy, its small wheels come off too easily and could find their way into children's mouths. And this, another push toy in the form of a butterfly. See the tip of its antenna? It can easily pull off. Both this and the wheels on the airplane toy pose a serious choking hazard to young children.
If you have either of these toys, remove them from your child and contact LS Import Inc. for a full refund.
Disturbingly at the time of making this video, we found them still for sale on the Aliexpress.com website.
Number 9: Marin 2014 boy's MBX 50 and girls Tiny Trail bicycles
$250 is a lot to pay for a small child's single-speed bike, so you wouldn't expect any problems. But this Marin 2014 boy's model MBX 50 bike and the girls version, Tiny Trail are both being recalled because of a dangerous handlebar system which can easily become loose and separate causing the rider to crash.
If you this you have one of these bikes, you can check the serial number underneath on the down tube as shown here.
The boys bicycles were sold in red and have this serial number. The girl's model is in purple with this serial number.
If you have one, take it back or contact Marin for a replacement handlebar stem.
