Dan Brechner & Co., Inc. "Riding Rabbit" Wind-Up Toy Recalled

Floral Park, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Dan Brechner & Co., Inc. is recalling its "Riding Rabbit" wind-up toy because the toy may break into small parts posing a potential choking hazard to young children.

The "Riding Rabbit" wind-up toy is made of yellow or pink plastic and is about six inches in height. The rabbit has a white face with an orange nose and a white stomach, and a decal of three stars and a blue cloud. When wound-up, the rabbit's head rocks while it "rides" around on what appears to be a unicycle.

Approximately 5,400 of these Riding Rabbits were sold nationwide, particularly on the East Coast, from January 1988 to February 1989 for approximately $5.00 each.

CPSC discovered this small part violation when a sample was collected and tested for compliance with safety requirements. Neither CPSC nor Dan Brechner & Co., Inc. is aware of any injuries associated with this toy.

Consumers who have these Riding Rabbits should immediately take them away from children and return them to the retailer where purchased for a full refund of the purchase price. Consumers with questions regarding this recall may contact Robert L. Follick, Esq., at (212) 233-6630.
