Toys ‘R’ Us rarely recalls toys as we have learned over the years, however, the CPSC and Toys ‘R’ Us are voluntarily recalling approximately 24,000 Imaginarium Activity Centers due to a choking hazard. The problem is the five-sided wooden Imaginarium Activity Center has small wooden knobs which attach xylophone keys to the activity center and can detach, causing a choking hazard to young children. The Imaginarium was manufactured in China and imported to the U.S. by Toys ‘R’ Us.
Fortunately, there have only been eight reports of the knobs detaching and no reports of injuries thus far. Consumers will find the model number 46284, the Toys ‘R’ Us item number 295909, and the barcode number000799985462841 printed on the box the Imaginarium came in, not on the product itself.
The Imaginarium Activity Center was sold throughout the nation at Toys “R” Us stores and online via www.toysrus.com from August 2009 through September 2010 for approximately $25.
Consumers are advised to completely remove this toy from children’s access and return it to Toys ‘R’ Us for a full refund or store credit. Consumers can contact Toys “R” Us on their toll-free number at 1(800) 869-7787 between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Saturday and between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, or visit the firm’s website at www.toysrus.com/safety.
