HABA Toys has issued a press release detailing the voluntary recall of some of its popular toys due to the possibility they could contain choking hazards. We encourage everyone to find out more information and inquire about refunds here.
Here are the toys recalled; so far no injuries have been reported.
The main issue with the rattles is that the mirrors and prisms can become detached and become a choking hazard. The Miro Rattle also could be a choking hazard if dropped from a three foot height and the smaller plastic ball is released as the toy breaks. (The redesigned Miro has a brass bell inside that does not break so easily, so it is not being recalled. )
The Triolino Puzzle has a ladybug head that could be a choking hazard. In this case, HABA is offering to replace the puzzle piece with a safer one.
We applaud HABA for notifying the media as soon as they realized some of their products could cause injury, before anyone has gotten hurt.
