Little Tikes™ Workshop Sets and Trucks manufactured by Little Tikes, of Hudson, Ohio, have been recalled. The recalled workshop sets and trucks have oversized, plastic toy nails that can pose a choking hazard to young children. The firm has received one report of an 11-month old boy from Goose Creek, S.C. who choked when the toy nail became forcefully lodged in his throat. The child was hospitalized and made a full recovery.
The oversized, plastic toy nail is about 3 ¼ inches long by 1 ¼ inch in diameter and comes in red or blue colors. It has a large round head; about 1 ¼ inches below the head is a plastic ridge, slightly smaller than the nail head and about 1 inch in diameter. They were sold with a variety of Little Tikes™ children’s products. The toys were sold by various web sites such as www.littletikes.com and mass merchandise retailers nationwide, including Toys “R” Us, from March 1994 through June 2009 for between $25 and $100. Consumers should immediately take the toy nails away from young children and contact the firm for a free replacement toy nail. For additional information, contact Little Tikes™ at (800) 791-2737, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.littletikes.com.
