Jacksonville parents need to once again check their children's toys for recalls. Blip toys along with the Consumer Products Safety Commission is voluntarily recalling toy horses in January 2010 because the lead amounts violate federal standards. The toys were purchased at Walmart stores in the Jacksonville area and throughout the United States.
Walmart stores can be located throughout Duval, Clay, St. Johns, and Nassau counties.
The toy horses involved in this recall are the Nature Wonders HD pinto horse toy figures with model number 92093. The horses are approximately 4 inches tall and are white with brown spots. They are made of hard plastic material. To identify the model number and name of the horse, the retail tag would still need to be attached.
