Pull-along Snail Toys Recalled
Federal safety officials say a toy maker in the Los Angeles suburb of Culver City is involved in two recalls.
Small World Toys of Culver City and BRIO Corporation of Germantown, Wisconsin are recalling a total of about 3,000 Plan Toys pull-along snails because protruding pegs with painted eyes can detach.
The bright green, yellow and red toys about ten inches long pulled by a nylon string were sold during the past year for about $15 each. A stamp on the bottom of the snail´s head has the Plan Toys logo and says “Made in Thailand.”
Small World Toys is also recalling about 880 “Sort and See” toys because the plastic windows on the “see-inside” sorting blocks can break, to release the beads inside. The company has received one report of a sorter block breaking.
The recalled wood toy comes with eight colored blocks filled with beads visible through plastic windows. “Ryan´s Room” is printed on one side of the sorter box. The “Sort and See” toys were sold the past two months for about $20.
