The stunned dad could be heard shouting and clutching his face after the Hallmark Disney decoration erupted while he changed its button batteries.

He said: “The battery exploded!”

Lanphear then went to his local emergency room amid fears he got the corrosive substance on his skin or eyes.

He told AzFamily: “My biggest concern was that the debris or the acid in that battery was going to permanently damage by eye.

“When you’re changing those button batteries out, you have to use some sort of eye protection.

“I never expected an ornament to cause an explosion.”

He escaped without serious harm and is grateful the ornament – his children’s favourite – did not injure anyone else.

Lanphear has also contacted Hallmark to flag up the potentially dangerous batteries, and says the company took a report about what happened.

He added: “I guess from now on I’m going to need to wear face protection when I’m changing the ornament batteries. It’s just crazy.”

He warned: “When you’re changing out the button batteries, wear some eye protection.”
