Toys "R" Us, Inc. Recalling 15,000 Crib Pals "Play Shapes"

Paramus, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - Toys "R" Us, Inc. is recalling 15,000 Crib Pals "Play Shapes," sets because they may pose a potential choking hazard to young children because of small pieces.

The set being recalled contains four plastic pieces in different shapes and colors consisting of a cone with a whistle, a cube with a mirror, a cylinder and a circle with a ball that rattles. They are packaged in a blister pack with a label "Crib Pals Play Shapes, SKN 157198, Ages 1 and up, Lucky Star Enterprises, Made in Taiwan." The product fails to meet the mandatory standard for baby rattles that is intended to prevent choking accidents to young children.

These baby toys were sold nationwide during 1988 and 1989 through Toys "R" Us, Inc. stores for $2.99 per package. While neither the CPSC nor Toys "R" Us, Inc. is aware of any injuries associated with the toy, this recall is being taken to prevent the possibility.

Consumers having these baby toys should take them away from children and return them to the nearest Toys "R" Us, Inc. store for a full refund of the purchase price.

Consumers who have any questions about this recall may contact Toys "R" Us, Inc. directly at 1-800-548-0364.
