Product Safety Australia have recalled the Build-A-Bear Workshop Pty Ltd—Starbrights Dragon Plush Bear as it may not comply with the mandatory standard for toys for children up to and including 36 months of age (Australian Standard AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2003, as amended by the regulation).

The Starbrights Dragon is a Build-A-Bear stuffed toy covered in soft blue fabric, silver light-up horns on its head and silver wings on its back. The stuffed dragon is approximately 18 inches high and 10 inches wide. Tracking label ending with 2248 can be found on a sewn in label on the backside of the left leg of the stuffed dragon.

The defect is that the stitching on the satin seam at the front of the toy is faulty in some units. As a result the toys may liberate polyester fill during use and may not comply with the mandatory standard for toys for children up to and including 36 months of age (Australian Standard AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2003, as amended by the regulation).

The hazard is that the polyester fill may present a choking hazard if ingested by infants.

The item was sold nationally at Build-A-Bear Workshops from the 23rd April 2015 - 15th August 2015.
