BIG W is recalling a popular brand of infant sleeping bags because of a potential choking hazard.

It has been reported, press studs on Dymples Infants 00-2 sleeping bags might become loose and detach from the garment, posing a choking hazard for children, the national retailer said in a statement on Tuesday.

Customers should immediately stop using the products, which were sold nationally between January 25 and April 15, and return them to any Big W store for a full refund.


Recalled Dymples Infants 00-2 sleeping bags:

Grey Bears – 400511, 400510, 400512, 400513
Blue Vehicles – 400515, 400514, 400516, 400517
White Bunny – 400523, 400522, 400524, 400525
Pink Hearts – 400527, 400526, 400528, 400529

The article number can be found on the reverse side of the care label.

  • I just found out they started re-calling these in Qld. nearly 2 weeks ago.
    Fortunately I didn’t buy this brand at all.


  • Very scary ..do hope NO one is harmed.


  • Where were these products actually made I wonder :(


  • Thank god we do not own these.


  • I think it’s just terrible that these unsafe products even make it to our shelves! These are baby products, they should be enthusiastically tested over and over BEFORE they get to the shelves


  • Thanks for sharing a public/community service announcement.


  • Surely it would be better if these products were tested properly before being put on the market.

    • Would be interesting to know how products are tested and the standards?


  • OMG I got one of these as a gift for my little one.


  • Lets hoper this problem is fixed into the future. So scary for mums as when items are purchased they ought be safe. Good reminder to make our own checks on the items we buy and use.


  • You’d think they’d test this sort of thing rigorously.


  • How scary. I will sharing this


  • wow that can’t be good for business – lots of people shop at BIG W for baby goods – hope they can get the problem sorted quickly so no one gets harmed.
