Take Action

If you’ve purchased a doctor, teacher or stylist dress-up costume for a child, check whether it’s on the recall list.

About 205,000 Litti City and Litti Pritti dress-up playsets, along with Pretex Slime Eggs, have been recalled because they contain excessive levels of substances toxic to children, the Consumer Protection Safety Commission said. The playsets are the Premier Doctor Playset, Teacher Purse Set and Litti Pritti Stylist Handbag Set. All three outfits and the slime eggs contain levels of phthalates that exceed federal limits; the teacher and stylist playsets and the slime eggs contain excessive levels of lead. Phthalates and lead are toxic and, if ingested by children, can cause health problems.

The toys were imported by Perch of Boston, Mass., Amusty Inc. Staten Island, N.Y., and Bingo Deals of Harriman, New York. Consumers can get a refund by contacting Perch at 888-359-4676, emailing [email protected] or by going to www.recallrtr.com/playsets.

The Litti City premier doctor playset contains a white doctor’s outfit and accessories including blue glasses, yellow stethoscope and bandages. The Litti City teacher purse playset contains a green purse and accessories, including glasses, markers, rules, eraser, hall passes, learning charts and stickers. The Litti Pritti stylist playset includes a pink purse, wallet, make-up, keys and cell phone. The Pretex slime eggs contain 12 clear plastic eggs with slime in various colors.

The playsets were sold online at Amazon and Walmart and at Ocean State Job Lot stores. They sold for $9 to $45 from July 2021 through April 2023.
