Consumers Alerted to Recall of "Tumblekins" Toys
HARTFORD, February 17 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with International Playthings LLC, of Parsippany, N.J., is voluntarily recalling about 38,000 “Tumblekins” toys that sold in juvenile product stores, mass merchandisers and other stores nationwide and on various websites from March 2011 through December 2011, for $14 to $35.
All Tumblekins toy vehicles and playsets, including the farm, fire station, police car, roadster, off-roader, fire truck and school bus are being recalled because the toys can break into small pieces with sharp points, posing choking and lacerations hazards to children. The toys are wooden, painted in bright colors, and range from 6 to 12 inches long and 4 to 9 1/2 inches tall. "Tumblekins," "Made in China" and manufacturing code "171111461502" or "346101461502" are printed on the toys. (Some sample photos below.)
Consumers should take the recalled toys away from children immediately and contact International Playthings to receive a free replacement toy. For additional information, contact International Playthings at (800) 445-8347 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or email the firm at email@example.com.
