Popular kids musical toy recalled from Target over choking fears

A popular children’s musical toy guitar has been recalled from Target stores around the country over fears it may pose a choking hazard.

The Young Ones Lights and Sounds Guitar has been pulled from sale because a push button on the product (highlighted in below photo) may become detached with applied force.

“If the part becomes detached it may pose a choking hazard to small children,” the recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website reads.


The recalled toy has been available for sale nationwide from 1 July 2014 – 10 October 2018.

Parents are being urged to remove the toy from their children immediately and to return it to a Target or Target Country store as soon as possible for a full refund. A receipt is not required to obtain a full refund.
