Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Children’s Toys are subject to this recall:

  • Le Toy Van Petilou Sensory Shapes, a set of wooden sensory toys containing nine (9) wooden coloured play blocks.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, APNs or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the toy’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Sensory Shapes are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, two (2) of the nine (9) blocks included as part of the product (specifically, the red and blue Blocks) may not comply with the mandatory safety standards for toys for children up to and including 36 months of age (Consumer Protection Notice No. 14 of 2003, as amended by Consumer Protection No.1 of 2005). This is due to the suspicion that the recalled Blocks may come apart during normal use by the child.

If plastic, wood or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Sensory Shapes, please do not let your child play with them. Instead, kindly return the Sensory Shapes to the store or online outlet where you purchased it for a full refund.
