Build-A-Bear Recalls 30K Stuffed Animals

Build-A-Bear Workshop stores are extremely popular among kids and their parents. Unfortunately, one of the company’s stuffed animals has a serious defect that poses a hazard to small children.

The child product recall specifically involves 33,600 Starbrights Dragon stuffed animals. They were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and on the company’s website between April 2015 and August 2015 for about $25.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the satin seam of the stuffed animal can open, allowing the stuffing material to be exposed. Given that young children are prone to putting everything in their mouths, the defective seams pose a serious choking risk. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.

For parents who are concerned that the recalled stuffed animal may be in their child’s toy box, the CPSC describes the Starbrights Dragon as a blue furry dragon with a silver satin tummy, feet pads, wings and horns. The horns light up and the toy makes a musical sound when the hand is squeezed. The stuffed animal is about 17 inches high. The tracking label ending with 9333 or 9334 for USA and 9337 or 9459 for Canada can be found on the label sewn on the backside of the leg.

Given the choking hazard, parents and caregivers should immediately take the recalled stuffed animal away from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear Workshop store. Consumers will then receive a coupon for any Build-A-Bear stuffed animal.
