It’s officially December and that means ‘tis the season for gift giving. If you’re one of those very organized people, you may have already started your holiday shopping, or even be done already. Some of us, however, are just getting started making lists and researching the best gifts to give our loved ones this year.
Purchasing gifts for adults is one thing; most are happy receiving clothes, gift cards, tools, or similarly useful household items. Buying gifts for kids though, is a different story entirely. Oftentimes their requests can be very specific or include toys that are difficult to find due to their popularity. Parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles everywhere find themselves frantically traversing cities, visiting multiple stores in the hope of finding the gift that will make this holiday the “best one ever.”
As you’re getting ready to start your holiday shopping, remember that each year there are a huge number of products, foods, and toys that are recalled for various reasons. Whether you’ve already started making your holiday purchases or not, it’s a good idea to be aware of any recent product recalls, especially when buying gifts for babies and children. To help you out this season, we’ve pulled together a few of 2015’s biggest recalled children’s items and toys to stay away from (or return if already purchased).
Major 2015 Toy Recalls
You shouldn’t have to worry about your safety or the safety of others when making a purchase, let alone when buying a children’s toy. Nonetheless, kid’s toys and product recalls are fairly common, with about 42% of all recalls between 2006 and 2011 being for children’s products (www.wemakeitsafer.com). As noted, the products above are only a small sample of the recalls issued in 2015. The Consumer Product Safety Commission provides a full listing of all product recalls occurring in the United States.
We hope that you’ll find this article useful when making your holiday shopping list this year. From everyone at Boller & Vaughan, we wish you and your family Happy Holidays and Season’s Greetings!

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
