Announce Recall of Flying Dolls WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Tara Toy Corp. of Hauppauge, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 670,000 Flying Warrior dolls. During use, the wings of these flying dolls can break off, causing serious injuries to consumers. CPSC and Tara Toy Corp. have received four reports of the doll's wing breaking off during use. Two children suffered serious eye injuries, including a shattered iris and cataract development that required an artificial lens, and resulted in partial loss of sight. A cut under the eye and a broken front tooth also have resulted. The Flying Warrior dolls, measuring about 7 inches tall, are made of colored and metallic plastic. There are four warriors: "Rotor," "Blades," "Gyro" and "Spin." The warriors have plastic metallic bodies with green, blue, red, and yellow uniform accents. Their arms are attached to yellow or red wings with accent colors. The warriors are placed on launchers, which have a pull cord to release the doll into the air. The launchers also have a foam missile that can be released into the air. The words, "Made in China" are embossed onto the back of the warrior's leg. "Tara Toy Corp...Made in China" is embossed on the launcher. The dolls are packaged in colorful cardboard window boxes. "Flying Warriors...Tara" is printed on the front of the box. Toy stores nationwide sold the dolls from April 1995 through December 1997 for about $7. Consumers should stop using the dolls immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information about this recall, consumers should call Tara Toy Corp. toll-free at (888) 669-7087 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday. [Learn More]
