WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC),
Creative Products, Inc., of Skokie, IL, is voluntarily recalling 4,334 "Lovely
Sonny" dolls, model number 1079. When CPSC tested the dolls, the arms separated from

presenting a potential choking hazard for young children.
The vinyl Lovely Sonny doll is 6-1/2 inches tall with a painted face, blond hair, and
moveable arms and legs. It is dressed in a non- removeable one piece dress and was sold in
a 7-1/4 inch woven basket with one handle on each side. When purchased, the doll was
packaged in a cellophane wrapping with a cardboarder header. The label on the header reads
in part: "Lovely Sonny * * * MADE IN CHINA."
The Lovely Sonny doll, imported by Creative Products, Inc., was sold at three stores: The
Bazaar, Inc., Cicero, IL; One Dollar Shops, Inc., Branson, MO; and N.B. Wholesale,
Houston, TX. The doll sold for $1.00 each from early December through December 31, 1991.
Consumers are urged to take the dolls away from young children immediately and return them
