About 12,650 Journey Girl Travel Trunks, used to carry 18-inch-tall toy dolls have been recalled because the metal handle on the trunk can be sharp, posing a laceration hazard to the user. The 21-inch-tall trunks are purple with a blue pattern and a blue metal handle. The trunks were sold with three clothes hangers and two pull-out drawers for storage. Travel trunks included in the recall have UPC #48970277965070 and model number 5F5F79E. The model number is printed on the bottom of the travel trunk next to the UPC code. They were sold at Toys R Us stores from October 2012 through February 2013.

There have been six reports involving the handle, including one report of a consumer who received stitches.
