November 1, 2011: Kiddieland Recalls Disney-Branded Fairies Plastic Trikes
About 12,000 Disney Fairies plastic racing trikes have been recalled due to laceration hazards.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kiddieland Toys Limited, of Scituate, Massachusetts, has recalled about 12,000 Disney Fairies Plastic Racing Trikes (9,000 Disney Princess Trikes were recalled in April 2011*). (Note: Disney licensed their brand name to Kiddieland.) The plastic fairy figures protrude from the top of the handle bar posing a laceration hazard if a child falls on them. CPSC and Kiddieland have received one report of a 3-year-old girl from Ohio who suffered a facial laceration near her right eye.
Do You Own This Product?
This recall involves the Disney-branded Fairies Plastic Racing Trike. The trike is green and purple with a white seat and yellow wheels. On top of the handlebar, there is a Tinkerbell figure and three other rotating fairy figures. “Disney Fairies” is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar. The trikes sold at Target stores nationwide from July 2009 through December 2009 for about $50.
*The new model Princess Trikes do not have figurines and are not included in the recall.

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