The consumer protection agency has made Disney recall Forky 11, saying that the rolling eyes are hazardous to young children. Forky is the first character made from hand-craft materials. He gained instant popularity, mostly because of his nervous and anxious characteristics. People who are self-conscious and shy generally relate themselves with his characteristics.
