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.”
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.
