Parents of toddlers may want to go check the toy box for a plush toy that
could pose hidden dangers. Miniland Educational is recalling its Moogy
fastening toys for toddlers between 12 and 36 months of age because it
puts them at risk for choking.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the red
button on the Moogy plush toy’s left pocket can detach, which poses
a choking hazard to young children. To date, no injuries have been reported.
The toy recall involves approximately 2,000 plush toys. The recalled product
was sold at specialty toy stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com,
Gilt.com, HighlightsforChildren.com, ToysRUs.com and Zulily.com from July
2015 through February 2016 for about $33.
described in the recall notice, the Moogy plush toy has zippers, buttons, buckles, and laces. The Moogy
toy has a blue and green face, red ears, a blue jacket with a red zipper,
pink/red striped pants, and pink and orange shoes with polka dots. Moogy
measures about 18 ½ inches tall. “Miniland,” item number
R.96295, and lot number 0115 1402813 085 are printed on a white tag sewn
into the toy’s pants.
Due to the serious risk of choking, parents and caregivers should immediately
take the recalled toy away from children. They can then contact Miniland
Educational for instructions on cutting off the button to remove the hazard
in order to receive a full refund.
If your child or someone you care about has suffered serious harm due to
a defective toy or other children’s product, you may be entitled
to compensation. For more information, please contact
