When we buy toys for our children, we expect them to be safe. No one thinks that there is even the remotest possibility that a toy could catch on fire. But that is what has been discovered with the Aero Spin and Aero Cruz Sky Rover remote-controlled flying toys. The Sky Rover toys, imported by Auldey Toys North America in Quincy, Massachusetts, have been recalled and should be returned immediately.
The toy looks like a ball with wings on the side and blades on the top. It is controlled by a small remote control unit and is sold in a variety of bright colors. Some of the toys are sold with a yellow USB cord used to recharge the toy. A number of these cords have overheated, and while no injuries have been reported yet, the overheating could cause a fire or burn injuries.
The recalled toys have the following model numbers:
The toys have been sold by Walmart, Amazon and other department and toy stores between January 2015 and January 2016. For more information and the contact information, see Auldey Toys Recalls Sky Rover Toys Due to Fire Hazard.
