May 10, 2000"Stacking King" Wooden
Toys Recalled by Jack Rabbit Creations
Atlanta, GA (SafetyAlerts) - Jack Rabbit Creations
Inc. is recalling about 9,000 hand-painted, wooden stacking toys called Stacking King.
The wooden peg in the black and white checked base can come off, presenting a
choking hazard to young children.
These stacking toys have seven
interlocking multi- colored, doughnut-shaped pieces mounted on pegs. The pieces are green
with blue pok-a-dots, orange with yellow stripes, and purple with green swirls. The bases
of these toys have black and white checked squares. The top of the toy has a round,
hand-painted face with a wooden yellow crown. A label on the toys packaging reads in part,
"Stacking King," "Jack Rabbit Creations" and "Made in
China." Specialty and Gift shops have sold these products from February 1999 through
April 2000 for about $25.
Jack Rabbit Creations has received four reports of
the pegs coming loose. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should take the toys away from young
children immediately and contact the company for a free replacement base and a small toy.
To order the base or for more information, call Jack Rabbit Creations toll free at (888)
