Small World Toys Recalls Spinflower Rattles

Culver City, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Small World Toys is voluntarily recalling 262 Spinflower Rattles, Item #30945. The baby rattle, sold nationwide through retail stores since January 1988, may break apart if dropped releasing small beads. The flower petals may also break off producing sharp points. These hazards may pose a potential choking and laceration hazard to young children.

The Spinflower Rattle, made in Sweden, is a yellow plastic flower-shaped baby rattle with a clear cover containing nine multi-colored plastic beads. It was packaged with a large red plastic bolt for mounting the rattle on a bar across a crib. The rattle was sold in a clear plastic carrying case with a label identifying the product as "Fischerform" Baby Toys "From Six Months." "Fischerform" is also embossed on the front of the rattle with the figure of a fish.

Neither the CPSC nor the company is aware of any injuries involving this product. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

Consumers are urged to take these toys away from young children immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund of the purchase price. Consumers may also mail the product to Small World Toys, 5711 Buckingham Parkway, Culver City, CA 90230 for a refund including postage.
