Thousands of Disney Fairy Toddler Racing Trikes are being recalled.

The plastic fairy figures protrude from the top of the handle bars and can cut a child if they fall off.

There was one report of a 3-year-old child from Ohio who suffered a serious injury to her face.

Target sold the Trikes from July 2009 through December 2009 for about $50.

If you have one of these Trikes, do not let your child use it and call 1-800-430-5307 for a free replacement handle bar.
