2022 Recall Roundup: Toy Edition

As part of our holiday consumer campaign to ensure all Michiganders protect their wallets and their children this season, our Consumer Protection team put together this 2022 Recall Roundup.

Since toys should be fun, educational, and safe, this toy guide is a great tool to review before shopping for children this season and beyond. Not only can you determine what has been recalled, but the guide also provides the steps you can take to ensure the product is repaired, replaced, or refunded. A complete list of recalled products can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website.

Questions about the information in this guide or to file a general consumer complaint, contact our Consumer Protection team at 877-765-8388 or file a complaint online.

Toy Safety

Toys and games are tons of fun for kids and adults. Whether your kids are working on a puzzle, playing with building blocks or even inventing their own games, here are some toy safety tips to help them stay safe and have a blast.

  • Choose age-appropriate toys and follow age limits on toy guides.
  • Check to make sure there aren't any small parts or other potential choking hazards before you settle on the perfect toy.

Latex balloons are the main cause of toy-related choking fatalities in children.

  • Choose toys that match your child’s interests and abilities.
  • Check the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website to learn if a toy was recalled, especially when buying second hand or online.
  • Educate your older children about toy safety and recruit them to help supervise younger children.
  • If the child is under three, assume the toy or product will go in their mouth.

Many small toys, remote controls, watches, key fobs, flameless candles, and musical greeting cards use button batteries. Button batteries can be very dangerous causing severe internal burns and even death if ingested.

  • Always gift with appropriate safety gear that is sized to fit.
  • Pay close attention to privacy settings on tablets or any toy that can record a child’s voice.
  • Remember: magnets go in a lot easier than they come out. Avoid toys with high-powered magnets.

Check for Recalls

Toys are recalled when they present a hazard for any reason, including choking, fire, burn, and laceration dangers.

2022 Reported Toy Recalls

Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding COVID-19, some of the remedies identified in recall announcements may not be available at this time. Please check with recalling firms for further details.

And please remember: CPSC and recalling firms urge consumers not to use recalled products.

Used Items

You may be interested to know that many toys and items on the safety recall list can still be found at resale and consignment shops, and also at yard sales, flea markets or given away for a charity event. Consumers who frequent these shops need to be vigilant before purchasing a second-hand nursery product or toy second hand as some used products have caused injuries or even death.
