If the popularity of Disney-related Happy Meal toys, Disney pin trading enterprises within the Disney Parks at Walt Disney World Resort, and limited-edition merchandise purchases during events like the Disney100 celebration are any indication, many Disney fans seem to have a thing for Disney character-inspired products or merchandise.
Unfortunately for the Disney fans who enjoy these purchases, however, several Disney toys have just been recalled — and the toys in the product recall number the thousands!

The recall was put in motion by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission on February 16, 2023, and involves five different toy figures: the “My First” Mickey Mouse, two different iterations of Minnie Mouse, Buzz Lightyear, and Stitch.

There were around 16,140 of these toys sold so far, and somewhere around 600 of the toys were also purchased in Canada. Customers who bought these are being refunded. Because (as we know) many Disney fans do indeed love to buy toys or merchandise related to Disney Parks and Disney movies (especially when they involve classic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, or fan favorites like Stitch), there will no doubt be some disappointment on customers’ end despite the refunds!

Apparently, these toys are being recalled because “the arms or legs on the figurines can detach, posing a small part choking hazard to children.”
Are you a Disney toy or Disney character fan who chose to buy any of these “My First” Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Buzz Lightyear, or Stitch toys as gifts for your children?
