Too many of these incidents happen too often, and parents should keep that in mind when looking for new products for their children.
The latest children product recall to have impacted children all over the United States impacts all units of the ALEX Jr. branded sets of infant building toys, including the Baby Builder model 1982, the First Pops model 198P, and the First Snaps, model 1981 S.
These toy building sets are being recalled because the company ALEX Jr. learned that the small parts of the plastic toy sets can be detached while in use, and young children may be exposed to choking hazards as a result.
So far, at least 22 reports of incidents have been associated with the sets. Thankfully, no injuries have been linked to the incidents.
Consumers with the recalled toy building sets are being urged to immediately stop allowing their children to play with the recalled building sets. Take the devices away from your child and contact ALEX so that you may receive a full refund once the recalled products are returned.
Recalled sets of Baby Builders were sold nationwide between December 2009 and June of 2016, First Pops sets were sold from March 2009 through June of 2016, and First Snaps sets were distributed between March 2009 and October 2010. Consumers with the recalled products purchased the items at Barnes & Noble, Land of Nod, or online at Zulily.com.
If you or a loved one has experienced an issue with the recalled toy sets, contact the Consumer Product Safety Commission to report the incident.
All too often, these incidents occur long before recalls are launched. And in many cases, serious incidents happen even after these recalls are launched. Do not let either of these scenarios happen to you.
