The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Kiddieland recalled about 12,000 Disney Princess Plastic Racing Trikes (9,000 of the same trikes were recalled in April of this year) as the plastic fairy figures protrude from the top of the handle bar, posing a laceration hazard if a child were to fall on top of it. So far, CPSC and Kiddieland have received one report of a 3-year-old girl from Ohio who suffered a facial laceration near her right eye.
The trike is green and purple with a white seat and yellow wheels. On top of the handlebar, there is a Tinkerbell figure and three other rotating fairy figures. “Disney Fairies” is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar. The mini bikes were sold in Target stores nationwide from July 2009 through December 2009 for about $50.
If you currently own one it is recommended that you take it away from your child and contact Kiddieland for a free replacement handlebar with an enclosed rotating display.
