About 400 Parents® Busy Time Activity Centers™ have been recalled by Manhattan Group LLC, of Minneapolis, Minn. Wooden pegs on the xylophone activity can come loose, posing a choking hazard to young children. CPSC has received one report of a child putting a peg in his mouth. No injuries have been reported. The Parents® Busy Time Activity Centers™ is a wooden activity center cube-shaped toy that has a multi-colored bead run on the top. Activities on each side include a 4-tone xylophone and rasp, butterfly and caterpillar spinners, zig-zag drum, castanets, and pockets with “alligator,” “bear,” and “cat” pillow characters. Only items with wooden pegs bearing date code 400090GC are involved in this recall. The date code can be found on the bottom of the product packaging near the UPC code and on the tags on the bear character.
The activity centers were sold at specialty and gift stores, through mail order catalogs and online in the U.S. and Canada from December 2010 through February 2011 for about $90. Consumers should take these recalled toys away from young children immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. Consumers can also contact Manhattan Group for instructions on receiving a replacement item or a full refund.
