As a child, I was always jealous of my friends who had really rad theme beds like racing cars, construction vehicles, planes and trains. So here’s a bit of good news for all the envious little ones out there: That cool Pirates of the Caribbean boat bed your friend sleeps on has just been recalled.
The cautious folks at the Consumer Product Safety Commission have issued the recall on the Pirates of the Caribbean twin trundle bed because its headboard “has a storage bin that poses an entrapment hazard to young children.”
The CPSC has already received one report of a 4 year-old boy who sustained bruises on the back of his left and right ears after his head became entrapped in the opening of the storage bin.
The good news is that while owners of the bed are being advised to stop using it immediately, the can contact the manufacturer, Bayside Furnishings, for a free repair kit that will permanently close the storage bin.
Here is the contact info:
Call Bayside at (877) 494-2536 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PT
Or go to BaysideFurnishings.com
Kits will take around 4-6 weeks to reach customers.
Meanwhile, if Bayside wants to make a queen or king version of this bed (minus the safety hazard), I know an inner child in Brooklyn who might be interested…
