The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall on March 13, of the Toys R Us Imaginarium Activity Walker, due to defects in the product’s design that could pose a choking hazard for young children. According to the recall notice, the small bolt and spacer that attaches each front wheel to the Toys R Us activity walker can detach, which could put children at risk of choking. To date, Toys R Us has received at least five reports of the front wheels detaching from the recalled activity walkers, although no injuries have been reported at this time.

PRODUCTS AFFECTED BY CPSC RECALL
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. The product includes a multi-colored metal xylophone with two triangle mallets, one scratch noise maker and one multi-colored abacus on the front of the walker. The walkers affected by the product recall have model number “Toys ‘R’ Us 5F5E972” printed on their bottom, and the bar code number “3700217300319” printed on the bottom of their box. The recalled children’s products measure approximately 19″ tall and 13″ wide, and have multi-colored wooden, disc-shaped wheels. The Toys R Us products affected by the recall were manufactured in China, imported by Toys R Us Inc. and sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores nationwide and online on the Toys R Us website, from August 2011 until January 2013, for about $30.
