If you’ve watched ‘Toy Story 4‘ then you know the new toy on the block, Forky, steals the show. You also know that he spends half the movie trying to throw himself in the trash because that’s where he came from.
Obviously by the end of the film, he realizes he’s more than trash and becomes a “favorite” toy.
But sadly in real life, Forky is going back to the trash. Disney has voluntarily recalled 80,000 ‘Forky’ plush toys because they could be a choking hazard.
The 11-inch toy is a soft, stuffed replica of a character in Disney Pixar’s ‘Toy Story 4’ movie. It can pose a possible choking hazard for young children who might pull the ‘googly’ plastic eyes off the toy and put them in their mouths.
No injuries have been reported, but it’s a good move by Disney to recognize there could possibly be a problem. You don’t want to wait until something bad happens.
If you’ve purchased the toy, you can return it to any Disney Store for a full refund. Sadly, if you do that, it’s likely they’ll just toss the toys in the trash. Or take the eyes off and use them as dog toys.
Either way, it’s a sad ending for Forky. Hopefully he makes a safe return in the future.[mashshare]
