The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Toys R Us announced a recall yesterday involving around 24,000 Imaginarium 5-Sided Activity Centers. The issue with these toys is that the small wooden knobs attaching the xylophone keys to the end can detach, causing a choking hazard to young children.
So far, Toys “R” Us has received eight reports of the knobs detaching. No injuries have been reported to the firm.
This recall involves the Imaginarium 5-Sided Activity Center. The multi-sided center has two triangle-shaped ends with a wooden multi-colored xylophone on one and a mirror on the other. The three sides are square-shaped and include moveable block letters, rotating gears and sliding shapes. The name “Imaginarium” appears in a blue, oval-shaped logo underneath the mirror on one end. The second ‘i’ in the logo is dotted with a shooting star.
The recalled product has model number 46284; Toys “R” Us item number 295909; and has the barcode number 000799985462841. The model number is printed on the back of the box, directly above the bar code. These numerical markings do not appear on the actual product.
The centres were sold in Toys “R” Us stores nationwide and online via www.toysrus.com from August 2009 through September 2010 for about $25. It is asked that you immediately stop using the product, move it out of the reach of young children and return it to a Toys “R” Us store for a refund or store credit.
