This is truly every parent’s worst nightmare.

Having a child means that you have to be extra aware of another person’s safety at all times. Parents are responsible for protecting their children from anything harmful. It is easy to become anxious about the safety of a child, especially at the hands of others. When it comes to toys, parents look to the brands that they trust to protect their children from harm. Disney has been a trusted brand for families for generations, as their toys are usually very child safe. Unfortunately, that is not the case in a recent Disney product that was released.

The Walt Disney Company Releases Dangerous Toy

There are many things to consider when buying a toy for your young child. Things like small detachable parts, sharp ends, exposed batteries, and toxic materials are all reasons to give Parents caution before purchasing. Unfortunately, in some cases, parents are unable to tell that a product could be life-threatening.

That is exactly what happened with a new Disney toy that has just been recalled. The toy in question is a Disney 2-in-2 outdoor child swing. These children’s swings are meant to be the perfect toy for a young child, but unfortunately, that is not the case. Around 43,380 units of the swing have been recalled due to major concerns over a falling hazard. The Disney swing is made by Delta Enterprise Corporation.
