Fisher Price recalls millions of toys

Toy manufacturer Fisher Price announced Thursday that it has recalled about 10 millions toys because they were dangerous to children.

The toy maker said it has recalled about 2.8 million of several types of baby play areas with inflatable balls because of problems with choking. It also recalled 125,000 of the toys in Canada.

The company found that a valve from the inflatable ball can come off and become a choking hazard.

Fisher Price said it knew of 46 reports where the valve came off in the U.S. and eight incidents in Canada.

"These include 14 reports of the valve found in a child's mouth and three reports of a child beginning to choke. No injuries have been reported," the company said.

More than 7 million tricycles were also being recalled over a protruding part that had cut children, the company said.

    I say bring back lawn darts and M-80's. Maybe even whacky-clackers, flaming tennis ball launchers, and old style bicycles that break when you jump them. And free accordian lessons.
