In June of 2023, the toy company Zuru Toys issued a recall of its Baby Shark bath toys after a dozen-plus children were injured. The recall included both the toys’ full-size version, Robo Alive Junior Baby Shark Sing & Swim Bath Toy, and the mini version, Robo Alive Junior Mini Baby Shark Swimming Bath Toy. The toys’ design poses risks of impalement, lacerations, and punctures by children potentially falling or sitting onto the hard plastic top fin of the shark.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, of the dozen reported incidents of child injuries, nine required stitches or medical attention.
The toys were sold at retailers including Walmart, Target, CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, and other stores nationwide for between $6 and $20.
The model number printed on the bottom of the recalled full-size toys is “#25282;” and the model numbers on the recalled mini toys are “#7163,” “#7175,” or “#25291.” Upon receipt of a photo of the toy, Zuru Toys is allegedly issuing a full refund to purchasers.
