Stahlwood Toy's "Musical Mother Goose Mobile" Recalled

Youngsville, NC (SafetyAlerts) - Stahlwood Toy Manufacturing Co. Inc. is recalling its "Musical Mother Goose Mobile" No. 658 and "Musical Carousel Crib Mobile" No. 555.

Since 1988, approximately 39,640 Model No. 658 and 3,729 Model No. 555 crib mobiles were imported and sold nationwide. The musical portion of the mobiles may contain small parts that could present a choking hazard to small children.

The "Musical Mother Goose Mobile," No. 658, consists of a two-piece white plastic curved support that attaches to a crib or playpen railing with a long thumb screw. The music box with a rotating hook is attached to the other end of the support. A white plastic canopy with five struts is attached to the rotating hook of the music box. Suspended from the struts are Humpty Dumpty, The Cow that Jumped Over the Moon, The Cat and the Fiddle, The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, and The Hickory Dickory Dock Clock.

The "Musical Carousel Crib Mobile," No. 555, similarly contains a child figure on a horse, fish, pig, hippo, and giraffe which are suspended from the ends of the five struts. A clown figure is suspended from the center hub.

CPSC Chairman Jacqueline Jones-Smith said, "The wind-up knob on both music boxes may come off and could present a choking hazard to young children. Sharp pieces of plastic from the music box housing may also come off and could present a choking, puncture, or laceration hazard."

CPSC was informed by the firm of a possible small part violation with the "Musical Mother Goose Mobile." Further investigation by CPSC revealed the small part violation involving the "Musical Carousel Crib Mobile." Neither CPSC nor Stahlwood is aware of any injuries associated with either of these crib mobiles. This recall is being undertaken as a precaution.

Jones-Smith said, "Consumers should immediately take the toys away from young children and return them to the store where purchased for a refund or exchange."

Consumers with questions about this recall may call Stahlwood Toy Mfg. Co., Inc. directly at (919) 556-8411.
