Build-A-Bear not built-a-properly
Mom and Dad, if your child has a Build-A-Bear Starbrights Dragon, take it away from them right now. And while it’ll probably break their tiny hearts, they will thank you for it when they’re older.
The folks at Build-A-Bear Workshop issued a recall Thursday for the dragon, one of its most beloved, one-of-a-kind plushables. It seems what may be your child’s favorite toy is also a safety risk because a defect causes the satin seam to open. This poses a hazard for young children who may choke on the stuffing. Build-A-Bear sold almost 35,000 dragons in the United States and Canada between April and August of last year, alone.
In case you haven’t heard of Build-A-Bear, it’s a plush toy manufacturer based in Overland, Kansas which provides a highly interactive assembly process for the consumer (the kids). There are more than 400 “workshops” worldwide operating in 19 countries. Noted for craftsmanship, Build-A-Bear posted a total revenue of $379 million in FY 2013.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission wants adults to immediately take the dragon and return it to the nearest Build-A-Bear store, where they will receive a voucher for any stuffed animal. Thankfully, no adverse incidents were reported as of yet, but you can’t be too careful when it comes to your kids or their toys.
