Crayola® Toddler Boots Recalled

Crayola toddler boot recallBoca Raton, FL (SafetyAlerts) - BBC International Ltd.  said today it is recalling about 38,000 pairs of Crayola® toddler boots. The toggle, a small plastic ball attached to the laces, can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

CPSC and BBC International are not aware of any injuries or incidents involving the toggles on these boots. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The recalled Crayola® boots come in boys' and girls' styles. The boys' boots are blue and black with a toggle on each boot to use to tighten the laces. The boots have a patch featuring a space scene with a "crayon rocket." The girls' boots are white with pink and lavender trim, and also have a toggle on the laces. The patch on the side of the girls' boot shows a snow scene of two kittens. Both style boots were sold in sizes 6 through 10. A tag on the side of the boots reads, "Crayola®." "MADE IN CANADA" is imprinted on the bottom of the boots.

Discount department stores, including Ames, Bradlees, Anne & Hope and Forman Mills, sold these boots from September 1999 through December 1999 for about $20.

Consumers should remove the toggles from the laces of these boots immediately and throw the toggles in the trash. Consumers can return the boots to the store where purchased for a refund. For more information, contact BBC International at (800) 632-4450 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
