Recalled Toys, Games And Other Children’s Items: Seasonal Midweek Update

Be aware of this halloween recall to keep your kids safe while they trick or treat.

Usually I would wait until the I had a number of recalls to post, but given that Halloween is almost upon us it seemed prudent to get this one out there.

Canadian costume recall:
“Chic Diva” and “Feathered Witch” Halloween Costumes – costume’s feathers don’t meet the requirements for textile flammability under Canadian law.

Wow. Flammable feather covered costumes designed for a night that takes full advantage of candle-filled vegetables. Sounds like a Michael Jackson-esque mishap waiting to happen.

Recalled Toys, Games And Other Children’s Items For This Week

Child related product recalls. If you have kids you should be keenly aware of these recalls. Lead paint, fire, pinch, choking and other hazards can be avoided.

Check me out… I actually remembered to put another recalled toy post up this week. I was surprised that people seemed interested in last weeks, so I guess there’s some value here. It didn’t hurt that Popular Baby Products also linked to last week’s post (thanks again for that!).

Anyway, the string continues with a series of items recalled that could pose a risk to your little ones. Here are a few that have been brought to my attention:

US Recalls
TCB Imports Toy Police Cars – lead paint hazard
LTD Commodities Wood Abacus – choking hazard

Canadian Recalls
Hasbro Nerf N-Strike Recon Blasters – physical injury while firing the toy

Note, I’m not suggesting this is all recent recalls… but if you have one of these items you should follow the links to the relevant government websites for more information.
