Plush Rabbit Toys Under The Boyds Collection Label Recalled

Plush Rabbit Toys Under The Boyds Collection Label RecalledEnglewood, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Small Small World is voluntarily recalling about 60,000 plush rabbit toys sold under The Boyds Collection label. The eyes on these toys could detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Small Small World has not received any reports of injuries associated with these toys. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The recall involves two styles of plush rabbit toys: Natalie Nibblenose and Nickie Nibblenose. They are both about 6 inches tall with movable joints, and have bows around their necks. Sewn-on tags on these toys read, "THE BOYDS COLLECTION" and "MADE IN CHINA." Natalie Nibblenose is a white chenille hare. A cardboard tag attached to her with string reads, "NATALIE NIBBLENOSE" and "STYLE # 573300-01." Nickie Nibblenose is a French vanilla and white hare. A cardboard tag attached to him with string reads, "NICKIE NIBBLENOSE" and STYLE #573303-03."

Specialty stores sold these toys nationwide from December 1999 through September 2000 for about $6.

Consumers should take these toys away from young children immediately, and return them to the store where purchased for a free replacement toy. For more information, call Small Small World at (800) 485-7211 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
