It was just recently announced that Fisher Price, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mattel, is recalling millions of tricycles, high chairs and toys. The reason behind the massive recall is, The Consumer Product Safety Commission reportedly deemed these products to be potentially dangerous for children.

The bulk of the recall is taken up by Fisher-Price Trikes. So far there have been nearly a dozen reports of kids being injured while playing on the devices – 6 of them needed medical attention.

Some of the trikes feature fictional pop culture icons like Dora the Explorer or Barbie, and are said to have a hard plastic ignition key that stick out close to the seat that a child could potentially hurt him or herself on. In a severe case it could even result in genital bleeding, according to reports.

Included in the recall are also 1 million Healthy care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs, as a result of them causing over a dozen reported injuries. The problem with these products is this – there are pegs located on the back of them that reportedly seven children have needed stitches after falling on.

Herman Fisher and Irving Price founded the Fisher-Price brand in 1930. Currently the company generates approximately 2 billion dollars in revenue a year.

    How did we survive growing up. By todays standard, there should be no adults alive right now because we should have never made it through childhood. Why don’t we just wrap our kids in bubblewrap.
