Disney’s Toy Story never fails to grab the audience's attention; no sooner the movie is ready to hit the theaters, adults were equally excited about the film. Now that Andy has finally bestowed his toys to Bonnie, and finally we will see her in the bigger picture. The franchise will hold her as one the lead characters in the storyline. 

The franchise has added new toys to its club and the fans couldn’t wait to put their hands on the new character toys from the latest release. However, Disney has voluntarily recalled 80,000 "Forky" plush toys, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The 11-inch toy is a soft, stuffed replica of a character in Disney Pixar's Toy Story 4 movie. It can pose a possible choking hazard for young children who might pull the 'googly' plastic eyes off the toy and put them in their mouths.

No injuries have been reported as of Tuesday. Well, in the world of Toy Story it is definitely a nightmare for the toys.

Yesterday, Disney Park took to its Twitter handle and shared: “We are voluntarily recalling the 11” Forky plush due to a manufacturing defect. Nothing is more important than the safety of our guests; please call 866-537-7649 or return the item to any North America Disney/Disney Parks store for a full refund. More: http://di.sn/6005EQcMJ.

The toys have been sold nationwide in Disney Stores and Disney Theme Parks as well as online at shopdisney.com and through the Disney store on Amazon Marketplace from April 2019 through June 2019 for about $20. About 650 of the total recalled plush toys were sold in Canada.

In addition to its rolling eyes, the toy has poseable arms, rainbow screen art on top of the foot and a base. The enticing rolling "googly" eyes are made of a white plastic base and a clear plastic dome with a small black plastic disc inside to represent the pupil.
