Tots 'N Toys In Cradle Replacement Program

WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Uneeda Doll Company, Inc., New York, New York has announced a replacement program for the yellow cradle in the "Tots 'N Toys in Cradle," Model No. 70620. Small parts may break off the yellow cradle resulting in a potential choking hazard.

The "Tots 'N Toys in Cradle" consists of a six-inch doll in a seven-inch by 3 3/4-inch cradle. The yellow plastic cradle has one heart on each of the spindles and the inside of one of the rockers is embossed with "UNEEDA DOLL CO., INC., MCMLXXXVII, MADE IN CHINA."

Approximately 161,245 "Tots 'N Toys in Cradle," Model No. 70620 were sold nationwide from 1988 to the present for approximately $4.99 each.

CPSC discovered this small part violation when a sample was obtained and tested for compliance with safety requirements. CPSC Chairman Jacqueline Jones-Smith said, "Neither CPSC nor Uneeda Doll Company, Inc. is aware of any injuries or complaints associated with this cradle, but this replacement program is being initiated to prevent the possibility of injury."

Consumers should immediately take the yellow cradle away from children and return it to Uneeda Doll Company, Inc., 269 37th Street, Brooklyn, New York 11232 or call (718)768-9200 for replacement with a pink cradle which does not present a choking hazard.
