The recalled Casper the Friendly Ghost mini-figurines are made of resin and paper, and measure three inches in height. They were sold in mini bags decorated with a spider and web design. The figurines are dressed in a variety of costumes: Dracula in a red spider bag, Skeleton in a green spider bag, Devil in a purple spider bag, Mummy in an orange spider bag, Casper in a blue spider bag, and Wendy the Witch is in a yellow spider bag. Each figurine is stamped with TM & ©Harvey Ent. and "Coyne's & Company" and "CP1030" are printed on a white sticker on the bottom of the bags.

The figurines were made in China for Coyne's & Company Inc., of Minneapolis, Minnesota and sold at gift, specialty, card, and drug stores nationwide from June 2005 through September 2008 for between $1 and $3 each.

If you have one of the recalled figurines, you should immediately take it away from your child and contact Coyne's & Company to receive a full refund or credit. For more information, contact Coyne's & Company by calling (800) 336-8666 anytime, or by visiting their Web site.
