Many Miami parents may own a Fisher Price Soothe and Glow Seahorse toy. This toy, one of Amazon's best sellers, lights up and plays music in order to help infants and toddlers relax and go to sleep. However, many parents are noticing that the popular toy smokes and catches fire when changing the batteries.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received more than 10 complaints regarding the toy. Parents have complained that the battery compartment starts smoking and that the plastic around an internal spring starts melting. This has caused parents to become concerned about not only the risk of fire and burns, but the risk of poisonous fumes and exploding batteries.
