Build-A-Bear is recalling roughly 26,000 Sulley character stuffed animals. The stuffed animal's eye can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Sulley is a furry blue creature from the Monsters movies. The Build-A-Bear stuffed monster is covered in blue furry fabric with purple spots, horn on its head and has blue eyes measuring about 1 inch in diameter. The stuffed monster is about 17 inches high and 10.5 inches wide. Tracking label ending with 4384 or 4385 for USA and 4378 for Canada can be found on a sewn in label on the backside of the leg of the stuffed monster.

The recalled Sulley stuffed animals were sold at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online at Buildabear.com during June 2013.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled Sulley from children and return it to any Build-A-Bear Workshop store to receive a coupon for a free replacement stuffed animal.
