Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Activity Garden
While standing and playing with the mailbox on the Little Tikes Activity Garden my child began to cry loudly with pain. As I went to my child her right hand was caught and pinching her fingers from the bottom of the mail box door. I couldn't pull her hand out so I pushed the lid to the mailbox to close it and she screamed louder in pain. I then went the other way opening it all the way down so that the top of the lid is pointing to the ground and her fingers came out. Her first three fingers, the pointer, middle and ring finger were very red just at the tips and it took a while to calm her down. I never seen her in pain like that before so I was concerned that the mailbox was dangerous. After trying to re-inact how she could have got her fingers pinched I realized that if you open the mail box door all the way so that it is pointing to the ground there is a gap in the hinges area where little fingers could get trapped and then pinched.
