What is the recalled toy from Toys “R” Us?
The Imaginarium 5-Sided Activity Center is a multi-sided center with two triangle-shaped ends, one being a wooden multi-colored xylophone and the other end being a mirror. The three sides are square-shaped with moveable block letters, rotating gears and sliding shapes. The name “Imaginarium” appears in a blue, oval-shaped logo underneath the mirror end. The recalled product model number is 46284; the Toys “R” Us item number is 295909; and the barcode number is 000799985462841. The model number is printed on the back of the box, directly above the bar code. These numerical markings do not appear on the actual product. There are about 24,000 recalled toys involved, and Toys “R” Us has received eight reports of the knobs detaching from the toy. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported to the firm.
These toys were sold from August 2009 through September 2010 for $25. If you own this product, the CPSC recommends that you stop usage of the product immediately, remove it from your child’s reach, and return it to a Toys “R” Us store for a refund or store credit. I’ve always thought that even a tiny risk is too much of a risk for our children, so I urge parents to heed this warning and return the product if you own it.
For additional information, contact Toys “R” Us toll-free at (800) 869-7787 between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. ET Monday through Saturday and between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Sunday, or visit the firm’s website at www.toysrus.com/safety.
