Fall Hazard Prompts Troxel Recall of Flyer Swing Sets

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall of approximately 100,500 Flexible Flyer Swing Sets made by The Troxel Company, based in Tennessee, due to a fall hazard. The seats of the see saw can break away from the bolt fasteners during use, increasing the likelihood that a child will fall off.

The Troxel Company has received 1,232 reports of the see saw seats breaking; these incidents resulted in 13 child injuries, including lacerations, bumps, and bruises.

The recalled swing sets are available in 11 different models, which come with a see saw attachment along with the slide, bars, or swings. The affected swing sets include the following model numbers, which may be found underneath the center of the swing set unit’s top bar on a sticker:

  • 42560 Triple Fun II
  • 42544 Triple Fun
  • 42126 Fantastic Playground
  • 42124 Fun Time
  • 42030 Windsor II
  • 42023 Backyard Swingin’ Fun
  • 42013 Backyard Fun
  • 42003 Backyard Flyer
  • 41578 Fun Fantastic II
  • 41577 Fun Fantastic
  • 41575 Big Adventure

The swing sets were sold by online retailers, Toys “R” Us, Walmart, Academy, and other specialty stores for between $130 and $280 from December 2011 through May 2012. Consumers should stop using the defective see saws and contact Troxel for a no-cost repair kit. Consumers may call Troxel for more information at (888) 770-7060.
