Kiddieland Toys Limited recently announced a recall of Disney-branded Fairies Plastic Trikes. The recall was initiated after Kiddieland received a report of a 3-year old girl from Ohio who suffered a facial laceration near her right eye.
The trikes have protruding plastic fairy figures on the top of the handle bar posing a laceration hazard if a child falls on them.
The recalled plastic trikes were sold at Target stores nationwide from July 2009 through December 2009. The recall involves the Disney-branded Fairies Plastic Racing Trike. The trike is green and purple with a white seat and yellow wheels. On top of the handlebar, there is a Tinkerbell figure and three other rotating fairy figures. “Disney Fairies” is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar.
Approximately 12,000 Disney Fairy plastic trikes were sold in the United from July 2009 through December 2009 for approximately $50.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately take the trikes away from children and contact Kiddieland for a free replacement handlebar with an enclosed rotating display.
