June 14, 2001Electronic Light N' Learn
Activity Gyms Recalled
Pittsfield, MA (SafetyAlerts) - KB Toys is
recalling about 115,000 Electronic Light N' Learn activity gyms. Five detachable hanging
rattle toys have small round pegs at the top of the toys that can break off, posing a
choking hazard to young children.
CPSC and KB Toys have received six
reports of the pegs breaking off, including two reports of a 6- month-old-boy and a
14-month-old-boy beginning to choke off of a broken piece of the rattle attachment.
The Electronic Light N' Learn
activity gym is a multi-colored toy that converts into three different toys, including a
crib toy, a floor gym and a musical keyboard. The gyms' main console has five buttons with
numbers that make music when pressed and automatically light up when the continuous song
play option is selected. Five detachable rattles in the shape of a bear, snail, star,
half-moon and horse hang from the bottom of the console. A label under the handle on the
gyms' main console reads in part "ELECTRONIC LIGHT N' LEARN ACTIVITY GYM MODEL: 8735,
MADE IN CHINA."
KB Toy store, KB Toy Works, KB Toy
Outlet, Big Lots, Odd Lots, Pic N Save and MacFrugals nationwide sold the toys from
September 2000 through January 2001 for between $20 and $30. The toys also were sold
online at KBKids.com.
Consumers should take these toys away
from young children immediately and return the toy to the store where purchased for a
refund. Consumers who purchased the toy online, should return the toy to the closest KB
Toy store or contact KB Toys for return information. For additional information, contact
