On Thursday I treated 4yo DS to a new toy - a big Lightning McQueen car that he chose from Target. It talks & makes noises and is suitable for ages 3+.
He was playing with it close to bedtime last night when he suddenly started screaming & crying - his thumb got pinched/jammed near one of the wheels. He normally takes pain really well, but he was inconsolable for a good 10 mins after before he asked to go to bed. It must have hurt him a lot.
Today his thumb is swollen and a tad bruised, but it appears there was no serious damage done.
I have stashed the toy for now as I don't want him to hurt himself again.
The toy was $59 and I still have the packaging & receipt.
A) return it to Target explaining what happened & see what they can do?
B) list it on buy/swap/sell to try and recoup some $ by selling it to someone else?
C) let your child have the toy back and hope they don't hurt themselves again?
