Small Parts Have A Choking Hazard
Over 7,000 building toy sets from Infinitoy have been recalled because some of the pieces are too small and pose a choking hazard for kids who are under 3.
Product Description: This recall focuses on some Softimals building sets from Infinitoy. Being recalled are Super Safari Set model #30025 and the Deluxe Circus Train Set model #30040. These sets come in a white box marked ages 1 ½ to 5, and with the words, “Softimals. Build, Play, Repeat.” Each set contains pieces that can be assembled into vehicles that pull animals, and the drivers each have a small yellow or blue hat.
