  • Fisher-Price has issued a recall for a set of Little People Mickey and Friends Figures.

  • The recall only affects the Donald and Daisy figures.

  • Approximately 204,000 sets have been sold in the United States and Canada.

Attention to Disney fans, especially Disney parents: Fisher-Price is recalling its Little People Mickey and Friends figure sets, according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CSPC).

There are six figures in the set — Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald and Daisy — but the recall is mostly focused on the Donald and Daisy figures. According to the CSPC, the Donald and Daisy heads can be detached, making the toys a choking hazard for young children. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.

How to Tell If Your Fisher-Price Little People Mickey and Friends Set Has Been Recalled

Approximately 204,000 recalled sets have been sold in the United States and Canada. They were sold at Walmart, Kohls, Meijer, HEB and Kroger stores, in addition to online retailers like Amazon and Walmart.

If you purchased one, check the model number to see if it's part of the affected set. The recalled sets have model numbers PJ88 and HTW75. If you've already thrown away the packaging, the model should be on the bottom of the Goofy figure.

What to Do If You Bought a Recalled Set

Fisher-Price is offering compensation for recalled items. They will send you a pre-paid mailing label and issue a refund of $10, for just the Donald and Daisy figures. (The set retailed for about $20 initially, and you only have to return two of the six figures).

To get a prepaid envelope, visit the Mattel Global Customer Support page. You'll be prompted to answer a few questions to make sure that the set is, in fact, in the recall, and then you'll be able to receive a pre-paid mailing label via email.

If that doesn't work, you can call Fisher-Price toll-free at 855-853-6224 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

What to Look For When Buying Safe Toys

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), parents should make sure they're buying toys that are geared for the correct age group, especially when buying for kids under the age of 3. The AAP says parents should be wary of choking hazards, including toys with small parts, loose strings, small batteries, loose magnets or water beads.

In addition, toys should be checked to make sure they're sturdy and well-made, so that they can't be torn apart into choking hazards or break into sharp pieces. The AAP also says to steer clear of toys that are too loud, shoot projectiles into the air (which can injure eyes), or are made with toxic materials.

It's always good to register any toys or gear you can with the manufacturer so you can be alerted directly in the case of a recall. For more information on recalls or to sign up for email alerts, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
