Uh oh! About 9,000 Imaginarium Activity Walkers have been recalled by Toys ‘R’ Us due to choking hazards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Why the product is being recalled: The small bolt and spacer that attaches each front wheel to the walker can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Description: The recalled Imaginarium Activity Walkers have a round wooden push handle on the top of a curved triangle-shaped wooden walker base with four wheels. There is a multi-colored metal xylophone with 2 triangle mallets, 1 multi-colored abacus and 1 scratch noise maker on the front of the walker. The walkers have multi-colored wooden, disc-shaped wheels and measure about 19 inches tall and about 13 inches wide.
The recalled walkers have model number “Toys ‘R’ Us 5F5E972″ printed on the bottom of the activity walkers. Barcode number “3700217300319” is printed on the bottom of the activity walker box.
Where it was sold: The walkers were sold at Toys ‘R’ Us stores nationwide and online at toysrus.com from August 2011 through January 2013 for about $30.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled walker, put it out of reach of young children and return it to a Toys R Us store for a full refund or store credit.
