Target is recalling 143,000 Circo night lights because the battery can overheat, melt the night light, and cause a fire.
In addition to being battery-operated, the nightlights also came with an AC adapter.

The recalled nightlights include various objects and animals including a blue bird, pink hedgehog, green shark, orange dino egg, yellow rocket, and a white soccer ball.
They were sold at Target stores and Target.com from October 2014 through May 2015 for approximately $15.
Model numbers can be found on the night light’s bottom side.
