October 24, 2013: Infinitoy Announces Recall of Softimals Building Toy Sets
What’s the Deal?
Infinitoy has determined that certain pieces in the Super Safari and Deluxe Circus Train Sets pose a choking/aspiration hazard for children. The piece in question is the small, plastic hat that the playset’s figures wear. It is detachable and there has been one reported incident of a 18-month-old almost swallowing it.
Do You Own It?
The sets being recalled are the Super Safari Set model #30025 and the Deluxe Circus Train Set model #30040. The model number can be found on the back of the box in the lower right corner. The sets come in a white box with “Softimals. Build, Play, Repeat” and “Ages 1 ½ to 5” printed in a colorful font on the front and back of the package. The drivers of the lead vehicles, Safari Sam and Mighty Mike, have removable blue or yellow plastic hats.
These playsets were sold in specialty toy stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and Mindware.com from September 2012 to September 2013 for about $25 and $40.
What Should You Do?
Consumers should immediately remove the plastic hat from Safari Sam and Mighty Mike and contact them to exchange the hat for a free replacement figure.
