Recalled: Kiddieland Disney Branded Fairies Tricycle

Kiddieland recently announced the recall of approximately 12,000 of its Disney Branded Fairies Plastic Trikes (9,000 Disney Princess Trikes were recalled in April 2011) due to a potential laceration hazard. The plastic fairy figures protrude from the top of the handle bar posing a potential laceration hazard if a child falls on them. Recalled products include:

  • Disney-brand Fairies Plastic Racing Trike
  • Trike is green and purple with white seat and yellow wheels
  • Handlebar has Tinkerbell and three other rotating fairy figures
  • "Disney Fairies" is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar.

So far there has been one report of a 3-year-old girl from Ohio who suffered a facial laceration near her right eye.

The trikes were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from July 2009 to December 2009 for about $50.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled product away from children and contact Kiddieland for a free replacement handlebar with an enclosed rotating display. For additional information, consumers can contact Kiddieland at (800) 430-5307 , or visit the firm's website at www.kiddieland.com.hk
