Product Recall: Baby Gund Woodles Activity Toys

Filed under: Babies, Health & Safety: Babies, Development/Milestones: Babies, Toys

Gund Inc., of Edison, New Jersey, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Baby Gund Woodles Activity Toys. The toys feature wooden rings which can break into small pieces, a choking hazard for small children. There have been four reports of the rings breaking, including one where the child put the pieces in their mouth. Luckily, there have been no injuries.

These toys are a soft, stuffed animal body with a rattle inside and a wooden ring at the end of each arm. The product line includes a lion, giraffe, horse, and cow. They were sold at independent specialty toy stores in the US and Canada from June of 2005 through April of this year and cost around $12. These toys should be taken away from children immediately; Gund is offering a free replacement. For more information, contact Gund at (800) 448 4863 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or e-mail the firm at woodles@gund.com. Information about this recall also can be found on the firm's Web site.
