About the Koala Baby Girl’s (Butterfly Wing) Sandal Recall

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the butterfly wings sewn onto the sandal can easily come off, posing a risk as a choking hazard for small children.

Toys R Us had been issued a report customer who discovered a piece of the shoe’s detached butterfly wing in their child’s mouth. Despite this occurrence, no deaths or injuries have been reported.

The CPSC’s recommends that customers immediately take the recalled sandals from their children and return them to a local Toys R Us location for a full refund.

The Koala Baby Girl’s Butterfly Wing sandals were sold at Toys R Us locations nationwide, as well as online at and during the time of February – September 2014 at a retail price of $13.
