Product Recall: Learn-Around Playground Activity Center

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

LeapFrog Enterprises Inc., of Emeryville, California, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Learn-Around Playground Activity Center. A child's arm can get stuck in a plastic tube that is part of the toy. And, yes, in case you're wondering, that is exactly the sort of thing little kids will do. LeapFrog has gotten nearly a hundred and fifty reports of children's arms becoming stuck, including 54 reports of minor cuts and scratches.

This is a plastic activity center with a ball drop on one side, a small keyboard in the middle and some assorted activities on the other side. These toys were sold at department and toy stores nationwide as well through online retailers from July 2005 through August 2006. They cost around $60 and about 186,000 have been sold.

If you have one, do not let your children play with it and contact LeapFrog for a free repair kit. For more information, contact LeapFrog at (800) 701-5327 between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, and between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Saturday, or visit the firm's Web site.
