What To Do With The Toys & How To Get A Refund

Can I Return A Recalled Item To Target?

Yes. You can return the recalled Cloud Island toy sets to any Target store to get a full refund. (1)(2)

Another option is to contact Target to get their prepaid return label so that you can return the toy set through mail: (1)(2)

  • Target Corporation, of Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Phone number: 800-440-0680 daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. CT
  • Official website: target.com, then click “Recalls” (bottom of the page), then on “Toys”

Is It Still Safe To Use These Target Toys?

No. According to the recall announcement, affected consumers should immediately take these recalled toys away from young children. (1)(2)
