The slap bracelet's metal band can wear through the fabric covering
Studio Fun International has issued a recall affecting approximately 86,000 slap bracelets sold with children's storybooks. The metal band can wear through the fabric covering of the slap bracelet, posing a laceration hazard.
The recalled slap bracelets were included with DreamWorks Trolls: It's Hug Time! children's storybooks. The bracelet consists of an inner, flexible metal band wrapped in a purple fabric covering with a pink fabric flower.
The ISBN for the book is 978-0-7944-3840-1, which is printed on the back of the book.
The Trolls storybook and bracelet combinations were sold at book and other retail stores nationwide, as well as through book fairs and online from September 2016 through August 2017 for about $13 each.
There have been five reports of the metal bands wearing through the fabric covering of the bracelet resulting in cuts to hands or fingers, to date.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled bracelets away from children and contact Studio Fun International for instructions on discarding the bracelet. Affected consumers will also receive a free Trolls book.
