It's cute, cuddly -- and may be dangerous.

That's why Huffy Corporation of Miamisburg, Ohio, is recalling 28,550 Blue's Clues Foot to Floor ride-on toys.

The toy can tip forward when a young child is riding it, posing a fall and injury hazard.

The company says it's received 19 reports of children falling forward while they were riding the toy, resulting in 18 facial injuries.

This recall involves Blue's Clues foot to floor ride-on toys made with plush light blue fabric with spots in the shape of the cartoon dog character, Blue’s Clues.

The ride-on toy, with four wheels and handlebars tucked behind the dog’s ears is intended for toddlers 1-1/2 to 3 years old.

The model number is 55061 with the date codes of 15221,15921, 19921, 21021, 22321, 23721, 26821, 28821 or 29421.

The date code and model number are on the label located under the body of the product near the sound unit and battery door.

This isn't the first time a Huffy-manufactured ride-on toy has been recalled.

In late 2020 the firm recalled 3,150 Torex 24V ride-on toy UTVs following reports of 18 incidents of the toy moving unexpectedly.

There were no injuries reported in connection with that recall.

The ride-on toys, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide and online at www.walmart.com from August 2021, through July 2022, for about $40.

What to do

Consumers should immediately take the recalled ride-on toy away from children and stop using it.
