This safety concern deals with a Disney Tap Light that came with a sleeping bag set. The light is about 5.5" in diameter. The tap portion is located on top and is about the same diameter. When replacing the batteries (4 x 1.5AA) the battery compartment was melted. The compartment was so dis-formed that 4 new batteries couldn't be placed in the compartment securely. The melted section also created a hole in the compartment that exposed some wires. The wires were also melted. I feel this could be a major problem that could be a fire hazard.

Comment from Idea Nuova, Inc 6/20/2011
Idea Nuova takes product safety very seriously, especially for children’s products. We contacted the consumer involved in an attempt to ascertain additional information and in discussing the issue with the consumer the product already had batteries inside the pushlight at the time of purchase. They advised that the batteries were not a normal type of battery they recognized. We do not include batteries in this product so it is possible that the product was previously used and then returned by another customer. There are specific instructions included with the product advising what types of batteries are required as well as instructions for the proper installation of the batteries. Use of improper battery types or improper installation of the batteries will prevent the product from working as intended.
