Toy Insider Statement re: Fisher Price Recall
We were disappointed to learn this morning that one of the products on this year’s Hot 20 list – the Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway – was recalled by Fisher-Price. The wheels on the purple and green cars can come off, posing a choking hazard to young children. As a trusted resource for parents, and as parents ourselves, we are deeply committed to recommending toys that are completely safe for children, so we immediately removed the item from our list and replaced it with a wonderful, super-soft and cuddly, age-appropriate toy for ages 0+, Twinkle Twinkle Little Scout, from LeapFrog.
As industry experts, we know that all toy manufacturers take the issue of safety very seriously. By the time a product reaches our review team, it has gone through a number of rigorous safety tests by the manufacturer to ensure that it meets industry standards. Unfortunately, issues like today’s recall do occasionally occur. Consumers who have purchased the item should immediately take the affected purple and green cars away from children and contact Fisher-Price for free replacement cars. For additional information, contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.service.mattel.com. For this recall, Fisher Price will send a shipping label so you can send back the cars and receive a replacement. Each recall is handled differently, (for the high chairs they will send you a modification kit). We suggest reaching out directly to them for all your questions.
