Little Tikes recalls role-play toys

The firm is pulling around 1.6 million role-play workshop sets and trucks sold over the past 15 years due to a choking hazard.

The toys have oversized, plastic toy nails that can pose a choking hazard to young children, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Little Tikes has received one report of an 11-month-old boy who choked when one of the nails became lodged in his throat. The child was hospitalized and made a full recovery.

The plastic toy nail used in the sets is approximately 3¼ inches long by 1¼ inches in diameter and comes in red or blue.

The recalled toys were sold by various websites, including, and mass merchants nationwide from March 1994 to June 2009 for between $25 and $100.

The products were made in the United States and China.
