Product Recall: Tinkerbell Wands

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 8,000 Disney Tinker Bell Wands due to excessive levels of lead paint on the pearl beads in the flowers on the wand.

The wands were made in China and sold at Disney stores nationwide from April 2007 through October 2007 for about $13 each.

The green wands light up and make a sound when a button on the handle is pressed. On the top of the wand, there are white plastic flowers, a green bow and a pin with Tinker Bell's smiling face on it.

If you have one of these wands (and what little girl doesn't?), you are advised to immediately take it away from your child and return it to any Disney Store for a full refund. For more information, you can contact Disney Store toll-free at (866) 902-2798 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit their Web site.
