Aqua-Leisure Recalls Four Million

Tubes Out of Water: Four Million Floats Recalled

Get the kiddie tubes out of the pool! Before you set your child out to sail in the swimming pool, check out the more than four million flotation devices that have been recalled by Chinese manufacturer, Aqua-Leisure. The company makes many of the popular water items sold for between $8 - $15 at national retailers like Toys R Us, Kmart, Target and Walgreens. Though no injuries have been reported (likely because parents were supervising their children), 31 incidents of the leg straps tearing and causing tots to fall into or under the water were filed. If you have one of these inflatable devices, discontinue use and contact the company for a full refund.

not the tugboat.. we called it that, but its the wave rider that plays music. I dunno if we will bother getting a refund though, it wasnt very expensive.

We have the tugboat at my moms house, and so far it seems fine, but yeah, shes always right by ourside. I wonder how much use has to go into them before they rip. Its pretty hefty plastic and i cant imagine it ripping. We have 2-3 diff types of toys though, and we rotate between them and floaties and a ring.

wow, that's kind of shocking. we had a couple of those and our girls loved them. but like you said, we were always right there with them. to bad, it seems like a nice way to introduce baby to the water.
