What’s the Problem?
The CPSC Warning was issued on November 16, 2022, stating that My Bouncer Little Castle Bounce Houses have a yellow and green basketball hoop inside the castle which allegedly makes the bounce house unsafe, and poses a serious risk to children playing inside the house.
The four-year old boy who died was found with the hoop of the bounce house around his neck.
“The hoop became entangled and twisted, constricting the boy’s airway, resulting in strangulation and death,” CPSC said. “The agency is also aware of one additional report of a child being entrapped in the hoop but avoiding injury.”
After learning about these incidents, CPSC tested the bounce house basketball hoops to better understand their potential risks. However, the hoop failed to pass the voluntary standards outlined by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
As a result of these problems, the agency is warning caregivers, parents and other owners of the My Bouncer Little Castle to not sell or give away the toys. Instead, CPSC is recommending that customers throw the castles away in a manner that prevents other children from accessing them and possibly endangering themselves.
The bounce castles have been sold since April 2013 for between $100 and $200, and were sold under the name “My Bouncer Little Castle” and possibly other similar names.
