The Lullaby Hoot Interactive Plush Toy - an owl that sings when squeezed - has been recalled on safety concerns, the commercial arm of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
The ABC said it was withdrawing the toy because of "a small number of complaints" related to the toy's battery compartment.
"The screw which holds the battery compartment cover in place may become loose, potentially enabling a child to access the batteries, which could pose a safety hazard," the ABC said.
It said it had not received reports of any injuries caused to children playing with the toy.
It also said the consumer watchdog, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, had been informed of the recall.
Customers who return the singing owl to the store where they bought it would be reimbursed the full purchase price, the ABC said.
