Hobby Lobby Recalls Spinner Toys

Hobby Lobby has announced a recall of holiday-themed spinner toys the company sold in their stores earlier this year.

In a press release issued through the Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, the company disclosed that it had received a report of a toddler swallowing one of the toy’s coin cell batteries after apparently removing the battery cover.

It is estimated that about 43,400 of these toys made it to store shelves. If you find one, you should keep it away from any children until you can return it to any Hobby Lobby or Mardel store. If you bring along your receipt, you’ll get a full refund; if you no longer have your receipt, you’ll get a store credit.

You’ll want to look for a July 4th-themed or an Easter-themed light-up toy with a spinning bulb. On the handle will be 1 of these 2 item numbers:

  • 9130033
  • 9130082

Each toy’s handle holds 3 LR44 coin cell batteries.

New, the recalled spinning toys cost about $5. They were in stores from February to April. Like so many toys that are ultimately deemed unsafe, these were manufactured in China.
