ST. LOUIS, MO – If you have a Build-A-Bear Starbrights Dragon in your home, you need to take it away from your child right now.

So says the Build-A-Bear company as they have recalled over 30-thousand of the dragons. The satin seam of the stuffed animal can open, allowing the stuffing material to be exposed, which poses a choking hazard for children.

The Starbrights Dragon has blue furry fabric and a silver satin tummy, feet pads, wings and horns. The horns light up and the toy makes a musical sound when the hand is squeezed. The stuffed animal is about 17 inches high. The tracking label ending with 9333 or 9334 for USA and 9337 (or 9459 for Canada) can be found on the label sewn on the backside of the leg.   They were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online at between April 2015 and August 2015 for about $25.
