Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc. Recalls "Giggle-See" Bumper Pads

Chicago, IL (SafetyAlerts) - 43,000 "Giggle-See" bumper pads for cribs are being voluntarily recalled by Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc. in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The thin plastic ties of the bumper pads may tear off if infants and toddlers pull or bite the ties, presenting a potential choking hazard.

Kolcraft and CPSC are aware of 19 incidents reported by consumers of the ties separating from the bumper pad. Two incidents involved infants less than a year old who were found choking on pieces of a bumper pad tie. At the present time, no injuries have occurred.

Labeled "Giggle-See Learning Center Crib Toy by Kolcraft," the white vinyl bumper pad has four sections which feature "Teach Me," "Squeeze Me," "Measure Me," and "See Me" activities. The 14 ties securing the pad to the crib slats are 3/8 inch wide, flat vinyl plastic material which are heat-sealed to the vinyl plastic pad cover.

Sold from 1986 through 1989, "Giggle-See" bumper pads were available for purchase at retail stores nationwide for about $12.

Consumers should immediately stop using the "Giggle-See" bumper pad and call Kolcraft toll-free at 1-800-453-7673 to request a full refund of the purchase price. Consumers should cut off all the plastic ties and cut out the "Giggle See" logo from the bumper pad, place them in an envelope and send to Kolcraft Enterprises Inc., 3455 West 31st Place, Chicago, Illinois 60623 to obtain the refund.
