Parents are making returns after the holidays, after companies recalled several toys near Christmas. A common baby toy was recently pulled from shelves called the “Sassy Brand Hug N Tug Puppy”. It also comes in a monkey as well.They were sold at Target and Toys “R” Us and 43,000 were sold right before Christmas.All the items were removed from stores, but the model numbers are #80213,# 80214, and #61083.The Consumer Product Safety Commission pulled the item because children could choke on the beads and small pieces. When asked if this would change how she shopped, Barbie Morgan, a mother of four said, “There’s not really a way around it when you have this many kids, as I do, but it’s nice they send out recall e-mails.” Another mother, Michelle Thomas said, she returned a few recalled items and said, “Toys “R” Us was very accommodating.” She said, “They let me return them for a complete exchange.” For more information you can go to www.cpsc.gov
