York, PA (SafetyAlerts) - McCrory Stores, Inc. is
voluntarily recalling approximately 3,800 "Spring N' Bounce Car" toys, items
#8941 and 8941S, because of small parts which could detach and become a choking hazard to
young children. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The "Spring N' Bounce" is a plastic friction powered toy car with one of several
spring-supported monster head figures located in the driver's seat. Each assortment comes
with individual playing features such as a clicking hammer and bouncing hood. Item #8941S
also comes with a pencil sharpener. The cars are approximately four inches long and two
inches wide and come in a variety of colors.
When tested by the CPSC in accordance with regulations under the Federal Hazardous
Substances Act, the car wheels, hood, windshield frame and a hammer located on one of the
varieties of this toy separated from the toy posing a choking hazard.
The Spring N' Bounce car was imported from China and sold nationwide between August 1,
1989 and January 5, 1990 by Bargain Time, Britts, Elmore, McCrory, H.L. Green, Kress,
McClellan, T.G.&Y., Silver Kittinger, Newberry Stores, G.C. Murphy and some
independent variety stores. The toy cars carried a suggested retail price of $2.49 each.
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 with
questions about this recall may contact McCrory Corporation toll-free at 1-800-284-3704.
