Walmart recalls baby dolls for burn hazard


Walmart has issued a recall for the My Sweet Love/My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care Baby Doll.

The doll's chest contains a circuit board which can overheat, causing it's surface to become hot.

Walmart says 12 incidents have been reported, including two of burns or blisters from children touching the overheated doll.

174,000 dolls were sold nationwide from August 2012 through March 2014. The toy costs approximately $20 and is 16 inches tall.

The My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby doll is dressed in pink floral clothing and matching knit hat. Her packaging includes a toy medical check-up kit with a stethoscope, feeding spoon, thermometer, and syringe.


The doll cries when she becomes "ill," and the electronics cause her cheeks to turn red. Pieces of the medical check-up kit "cure" her symptoms.

The toy has a date code printed on a label sewn into the bottom of the doll which begins with WM. The doll is identified by UPC 6-04576-16800-5.

What Parents Should Do

Parents should immediately take the electronic doll away from children and remove its batteries. Walmart stores will issue a full refund.
