Mattel, subsidiary of Fisher-Price, issued recalls for several carguydad-related toys . The first recall is for over seven million trikes, where the problem is a protruding “ignition key” which has caused ten injuries. The trikes being recalled can be identified by disc- or D-shaped keys (pictures below).

The other recall is of Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play. The wheels on the little the little green and purple cars can come off and cause a choking hazard.

Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play

If you have the  Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play, go to Mattel’s recall website and they will send you new ones. Be aware however that:

“Only the purple and green Wheelies™ vehicles included with the Little People® Wheelies™ Stand ‘n Play™ Rampway that have “Mexico” and do not have a yellow dot on the bottom are included in this recall. No other Wheelies™ vehicles are affected. The remaining pieces of the Little People® Wheelies™ Stand ‘n Play™ Rampway are not affected.”

Trikes

The trike recall is a little more tricky due to the amount of trikes that the company offers. The key indication (ha) that your trike is recalled the shape of the ignition key. Mattel’s recall website has all the details on which trikes are recalled and what you should do if you have one.

This recall does not include Lights and Sounds Trikes; Rock, Roll ‘n Ride Trike; Grow-With-Me Trikes; Action Sounds Trike; Push ‘n Pedal Trike. These Trikes do not have a key feature in front of the seat. Any Fisher-Price® Trike with a key located on the handle bars is not affected by this recall.

    Also remember that if the box of the toy included a bag of broken glass to contact your retailer.

  2. Scott says:

    Gee I should sue Mattel because I took the seat off my Big Wheel and then slipped off the back and a big portion of my ass is gone. They would surely pay for my plastic surgery now…. MANY years later. What the hell. Lets see my first trike was M E T A L, with REAL screws and bolts and such. No wonder our kids ( mine included ) are gonna be nothing but problems later.

  3. Kamil says:

    Things are bit more ridiculous these days, but another way to think is that if a recall like this saves at least one kid from getting hurt, then it was worth it.
