LEGO Systems
The Danger:
The plastic wheels on the truck can detach, exposing a metal axle and posing a puncture hazard to young children.
Description:
This recall involves about 358,000 LEGO EXPLORE Super Trucks. The truck is a toy-in-toy product designed for children ages 18 months and up. The toy features a red plastic pick-up/dump truck that measures about 15 inches high and 19 inches wide with four 7-inch black plastic wheels that are packed with a box of 40 LEGO DUPLO bricks in the cargo area. The unit has a row of DUPLO "studs" across the top of the cab. Molded yellow headlights and stickers on the front and sides of the unit create the idea of a windshield, windows, and doors depicting a LEGO figure in the driver's seat. The LEGO Explore logo is printed on the door stickers. The box of DUPLO bricks is not included in this recall.
Sold At:
Various retailers nationwide, including Toys "R" Us and Wal-Mart, from August 2002 through August 2004 for about $20.
