Product Recall: Starbrights Dragon from Build-A-Bear

26 October 2015

starbrights-dragon-recall-pm Build-A-Bear Workshop have issued a product recall over safety concerns regarding their Starbrights Dragon. Basically, the problem here is that the stuffing might come out, which makes is a choking hazard.

This particular toy was sold from April 2015 'til August 2015, and if you have one, you need to stop playing with it (or your child from playing with it - good luck with that) and contact Build-A-Bear Workshop for an exchange.

Here's the recall from the company themselves:

"At Build-A-Bear Workshop, we recognize the great responsibility we have to provide our guests with products that are safe and fun. Safety is a key part of our brand values and has been since we were founded 17 years ago. In keeping with our values, we have issued a voluntary product safety recall of our Starbrights Dragon."

"While the Starbrights Dragon passed all toy safety testing, it has come to our attention that the stuffing may become accessible due to a weakness of the satin seam on the middle section of the Starbrights Dragon, which could present a potential choking hazard to young children."

"Although we have had no reports of safety incidents from consumers and we are unaware of any injuries caused by this product, out of an abundance of caution, we are encouraging guests to immediately return the Starbrights Dragon to a local Build-A-Bear Workshop store to exchange for an available furry friend of their choice."

"If a guest does not live near one of our stores, we ask that they call our product hotline at 0800-432-0779, or visit www.buildabear.com/recalls for more information."
