Little Tikes Recalls Swings

Hudson, OH  (SafetyAlerts) - Little Tikes Company is recalling about 250,000 "2-in-1 Snug 'n Secure" swings. The buckles on the swing can break and the shoulder restraint straps can pull out of the back of the seat, causing young children to fall.

Little Tikes has received 14 reports of problems with the swings. Five injuries to children included abrasions, bruises, cuts and bumps to the head.

The swings are made of molded plastic and have a blue seat with a red T-shaped restraint front. The model number 4117-00 is molded underneath the seat. The "little tikes" logo is written on the T-shaped restraint bar on the front of the swing. The swings were sold for children ages9-months through 4-years old. The swing is suspended with four yellow ropes. Only swings with blue or white buckles are included in this recall.

Juvenile product and toy stores nationwide sold the swings from December 2000 through September 2001 for about $20.

Consumers should stop using the swings immediately and contact Little Tikes at www.littletikes.com or call (800) 815-4820 anytime to receive a repair kit.
