- Curious George Musical Pull Toys Recalled by Prestige Toy Corp.

Prestige Toy Corp., of New York, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 4,600 Curious George musical pull toys for replacement.

It can hang from cribs, playpens, or other juvenile furniture. A red tag on the toy reads in part "STYLE # 3490, Curious George Adventures, and Made In China."
