ACCESS Canberra is advising parents and carers of small children about a recall on popular baby toy, the Bruin Wiggle Ball, sometimes known as a “Giggle Ball”, which is sold at Toys “R” Us toy stores.
Fair Trading commissioner David Snowden says consumers should return this product to their nearest Toys “R” Us or Babies “R” Us store and a full refund will be provided.
