The merchandize was purchased approx. 3mo ago. The back of one of the chairs broke half way off and extremely sharp metal (a tack weld) was exposed. My 5 year old was standing behind the chair with his hand on the (unknown) broken piece when his older brother sat down. The share metal punched his finger and as he pulled his hand back it cleanly slice his index finger from the middle of his nail bed to the tip. The safety instructions and warnings for the set mention nothing about this possible type of injury. The company that manufactures this set is technically China but Kids Only, inc in MA is also listened as a wholeseller.

Comment from Kids Only, Inc. 8/8/2014
Kids Only, Inc. who manufactured this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Activity Table and Chair Set, thanks the consumer for reaching out to us and bringing this to our attention. This product and packaging were reviewed, tested and assessed for ages 3 to 7 years old. Independent laboratory testing confirmed that the product was in conformity with applicable standards.

The product is marked clearly with suitable warnings, instructions and an appropriate age grading. According to our conversations with the consumer, the back of one of the chairs broke and exposed a segment of the chair frame. When an older sibling sat down on the chair, the younger sibling who was standing behind it tried to remove his hand quickly and allegedly suffered a cut on his fingernail when his finger brushed up against the exposed part of the frame. Fortunately, the child was not injured other than the cut and it is unknown how long the product had been in its damaged condition prior to the injury, or whether an adult had been supervising the children during play since the instructions state, “Adult Supervision Suggested.”

Incidents we learn of are thoroughly investigated and addressed with care as the safety of our customers and their children is our utmost priority. We appreciate the consumer providing us with the details of the incident to help us understand what occurred and to address her concerns. The consumer is sending us the damaged chair for our review and if appropriate, we incorporate any needed changes to products or instructions for future production. To replace the broken chair, we are sending the consumer a replacement chair and she has expressed that she is pleased with this resolution.

Interaction like we had with this consumer is always helpful to us, as Kids Only is committed to continuous consumer feedback and product improvement as part of making high quality products. Kids Only encourages consumers to contact us by calling our Consumer Relations line at 877-875-2557, or by emailing us at consumers@jakks.com with any questions and concerns about our products.
