Cuddly doll is too hot to hold

THE My Sweet Love Cuddle Care Doll is not so sweet and cuddly. They get too hot when hugged.

Chain store Game and the National Consumer Commission have withdrawn them from sale.

The baby doll is only sold at Game stores.

Spokesperson Kathryn Taljaard said a panel on the battery-powered doll’s chest can overheat. “We don’t know how hot it gets. We have taken them off the shelves and recalled them in the interests of safety.” About 1 400 of the Chinese-made dolls have been sold.
