Fisher-Price Recalls Intelli-Table Toys

Fisher-Price recalls Intelli-table ToyEast Aurora, NY (SafetyAlerts) - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fisher-Price has announced it is recalling about 20,000 infant and toddler Intelli-Table toys for repair. Two red knobs on the toy can break off, creating small parts that can pose a choking hazard for young children.

Fisher-Price has received 32 reports of the knobs breaking off the toys. A 14-month old child was found with a knob in her mouth. Her mother removed it and no injuries have been reported.

The Intelli-Table is a round, plastic activity table with a blue, removable top that uses three interchangeable play rings to help children learn numbers, music, and games. The toy is intended for children ages nine to 36 months. The base of the Intelli-Table is red with three legs that are blue, yellow and teal green. The play rings are colored white, yellow and teal green. The red knobs on the yellow ring and white ring can break off. The toy has a Fisher-Price logo on the blue removable top; and has the model number, 77148, and the words, "Mattel, Inc." and "China," molded into the bottom of the red base. Only models manufactured from September 25, 2000 through October 7, 2000 are being recalled. The recalled models have a date code from 269(0) through 281(0) molded into the underside of the blue, removable top.

Toy, mass merchandise and discount stores sold these toys nationwide from October 2000 through March 2001 for about $70.

Consumers should take the toys away from young children immediately and contact Fisher-Price toll-free at (800) 220-7137 anytime to order a free repair kit with replacement knobs. The repair kit consists of two replacement knobs with new screws. Consumers can also visit the Fisher- Price web site at to determine if their toy is recalled.
