Do you have any of these unsafe items in your home? Do you know anyone who does? All of these items have been recalled this year because they are dangerous to your children or your family. If you see something you own, stop using it immediately. Most companies offer free repair kits or replacements and many will give you a full refund.

Discovery Toys is recalling these toy mobile phones because the antenna can break off and cause choking. There have been three incidents of this happening with no injuries. About 3,000 of these toys were made in China and sold in the United States and Canada from September through November of last year for about $18. Only model 1231 is being recalled, so if that's your model, stop using the toy and contact Discovery Toys at 800-426-4777 or on their site to get a replacement toy.

These teething rings by Vulli are being recalled because if the ring springs a leak, the fluid inside can grow bacteria and mold. If it then comes into contact with your child, it could cause diarrhea and vomiting. The fluid inside the ring has not been treated to prevent this. About 7,000 of these teething rings were sold for about $10 at Amazon.com and children's stores from January 2009 through November 2010. There have been no reports of injury, though. Stop using the product and visit the company's Web site or call 888-318-9803 to get a free replacement teething ring.

Stop using these jammies and get in touch with Pajamagrams either on their site or by calling 800-262-1162. You'll get a replacement set of pajamas as well as a $25 gift card.
