RECALLS

At TOP-TOY, our objective is zero recalls. However, if at any time it comes to our attention that something is wrong with one of our products, we initiate a recall rather than compromise the safety of children.

Our recall process is transparent and involves close collaboration with suppliers, licensors and relevant authorities to alert them and arrange for necessary actions.

A full overview of all recalls in the last 5 years is available below.

BRIO Soft Hammer Rattle (2017)

Brio Soft Hammer Rattle

We would like to apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused and thank you in advance for helping us in our safety work.

outraswing1 outraswing2

Have you purchased this OUTRA PLAY 3-in 1 swing, item no. 472471 , in TOYS”R”US or BR? Then you should return it in a store from the chain you bought it in and get your money back.

We have received inquiries from customers who have experienced that the rope of the swing can slide if the weight is pushed ahead of the swing, e.g. if the child leans forward while being swung. At worst, the child can tip over and hang upside down.

Therefore, we have taken our precautions and asked the supplier to recall the product from our stores.

We have sold a total of 113 of these swings in the Nordic countries between April 1 and May 31 2016.

If you have any questions about the recall, you can call +45 46 16 36 56 or email com@top-toy.com
All other OUTRA PLAY swings are completely safe.

On behalf of NSH Nordic (provider of the 3-in-1 swing, 472047)

Our spot check has showed that a production (#105301) of the wig does not meet the self-extinguishing requirement in the Toy Safety Standard EN71-2. It burns significantly longer than permitted thus increasing the risk of an accident if a child wears the wig in the vicinity of candles or open fire.

The recall of the Rapunzel wigs is for the above production lot only, delivered to our customers in January and February 2014. Previous lots have been tested and found in accordance with the Toy Safety Standard.

It is essential to us that our customers trust our products quality and safety. Consequently, we react as quickly as possible when we discover products that are not complaint with the legal regulations or our own strict requirements.
