Build a Bear Workshop has voluntarily recalled the Colorful Hearts Teddy, model number 017107. The reason for the recall is that this bear utilizes substandard fabric, which can tear around the eye, possibly resulting in the eye falling out causing a potential choking hazard.
Those who own this bear should bring it to their local Build a Bear Workshop. The bear can be exchanged for a coupon for any available animal in BABW. For older kids who know better than to choke on an eye, this recall is just an opportunity to get a different (or more expensive) item from BABW if they weren’t satisfied with the Colorful Hearts Teddy.
