Palm Springs parents are urged to check their child’s toy bins for a newly recalled item reported to be a fire hazard. Sold exclusively at Kohl’s Department Stores and the Kohl’s website, the Big Movers Super Car toy trucks that are being recalled were gifts with purchase when a consumer bought the Big Movers t-shirt.
The 4-inch long blue toy trucks, manufactured in China, have oversized tires and a flashing light on top that were sold with a yellow, blue and red logo on the hood. The navy colored t-shirts were sold in boys’ sizes small, medium and large.
Apparently connections in the toy truck battery compartment have been reported of catching fire and also smoldering, according to Happy Shirts, the company that has issued the voluntary recall. Yikes!
If you are a parent with one of the toy trucks in your child’s toy bin, it is recommended that you remove the battery from the compartment immediately and contact Happy Shirts for instructions on how to return the truck for a refund.
The consumer hotline number to call is 1-855-354-2779 noon to 8PM PST, Monday through Friday.
