Do you own a Little Tikes swing? If so, keep reading!

Little Tikes just announced that it is recalling approximately 540,000 units of the Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug’n Secure pink toddler swings manufactured between November 2009 and December 2013. These seats were sold by Walmart, ToysRUs and other stores nationwide and online from November 2009 through May 2014 for about $25.

Why the recall?

These swings are being recalled as the plastic seat can crack or break, posing a fall hazard – there have been about 140 reports of the swing breaking including 39 injuries to children.

Which seat is being recalled?

The swings being recalled have a pink T-shaped restraint in front with a Little Tikes logo and the swing is suspended by four yellow ropes. The model number 615573 is molded on the back of the swing seat and there is a manufacturing date code stamp on the back of the seat.

The molded INNER arrow of the date code stamp points to “10”, “11”, “12” or “13”, it is included in the recall. In addition, swings with a date code stamp of “9” on the INNER arrow combined with “43” or higher number stamped on the OUTER are included in this recall. No other date codes or other colored swings are affected.

What do I do if I own this swing?

You should immediately stop using the recalled swings and contact Little Tikes for a refund in the form of a credit towards the purchase of another Little Tikes product. For more information, contact Little Tikes here or by phone at 1–855-284-1903 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

(Thanks, V and Jessica!)

    We bought one but gave it away after we moved to a house where there was no where to set it up. I can’t get s refund because I no longer have it to take a photo??

      I don’t think you get a refund, you get a replacement

      • Erin

        You actually get a credit toward another little tykes product.

    • Kelsey

      But either way, I need a photo…

      • Em

        Then the person who has it now would submit for the recall. I don’t think you are supposed to ask for a refund if you gave away the product or sold it.

      • Estelle

        I think your concern should be for the safety of the other persons child…not getting a refund for a product you no longer possess.

    Speaking of recalls, has anyone received their Cuisinart blade yet? How long did it take to receive? TIA!

    • Amanda

      I haven’t received the blade yet, glad I’m not the only one…

    • Jodi

      I received my blade about a month ago.

    • Rm

      Got it a week ago, my sister got hers a few days ago. So it’s coming 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for the heads up Liz!

    • Brandy

      Thanks! I might be getting a whole new set of knives… the ones that are 9 years old and we received as a wedding gift! That would be awesome.

    We owned one of these pink swings, it cracked so bad, we had to throw it out.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Bummer!

  4. Alex

    We had to throw ours out too- makes it hard to get a refund 😕

  5. Gretchen

    Just came inside, we were playing with this swing……Thanks for letting us know!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

    I thought it was kinda assumed that you shouldn’t leave this swing outside all the time. The elements wear on the thin spots.

    • Erin

      Yes, we bring ours in the garage every winter so it stays in good condition.

  7. Jess

    I’m not sure what the difference is between the pink and the blue swing but we own the blue swing and my son suffered a head/neck injury last summer after the black buckle that clicks into the “T restraint” broke as I was pushing him. He flipped backwards out of the swing and landed directly on top of his head. He couldn’t turn his head either direction and we ended up at the ER for some scans. The end result was a serious muscle spasm behind his ear and a really sore neck for over a week. It could have been much worse.
    I called Little Tikes to report what had occurred and they sent us some replacement buckles and also a tball set to my son. I was very impressed with how they handled everything. Little Tikes seems to have great customer service, I’m just not sure why it’s only the pink swings being recalled.

  8. Beth

    Website say blue swing is recalled too, seat will have blue or white buckle on it

  9. Crystal

    Where is the blue recall?

    • Erin

      See my comment above. It’s only the pink recalled. There was a blue recall back in 2011. At least that is what I determined anyway.

  10. Laurie

    Doesn’t ToysRus keep on record what we purchase. Wondering because I purchased an had to throw away because of severe cracking very shortly after installing.
    If they do wondering if I can get a print out of my purchase take picture of that proof an submit?? Any ideals
    I was not happy about only being able to use the swing for like 2 months.

  11. Susie

    Interesting! I have GGB triplets and they received two pink and one blue swing for their first birthday. The two pink swings are all cracked and on pile to throw away in barn while the blue one isn’t cracked (although buckles not in best shape, but it’s 6 years old… i figured that was normal wear and tear)

  12. Christina

    Thank you for posting. I still have this as a gift from my daughter born in 2010, we have a 17 month old now and use it for her. I took it down and sent in my recall info just now. Thanks!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome Christina!
