WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, CBS Inc., New York, New York, announced a voluntary recall and replacement of the plastic bodies of its "Clippety Clop" "Comanche" and "Colt" ride-on toy "Wonder" horses because the plastic body may break during use.
CBS has received 105 complaints that the body of the toy has broken without warning while being ridden, causing the rider to fall suddenly. Forty of these incidents resulted in injuries such as cuts, scrapes and bruises.
The "Wonder" horse is a painted plastic riding toy, sometimes known as a hobby horse. The body of the horse is suspended by four springs from a tubular blue or blown metal frame. Children sit on these toys and rock or bounce while holding onto dowels attached to the horse's head.
Over 114,000 of these ride-on toys, produced and distributed to retailers between March 1984 and May 1986, have been sold nationally for approximately $60 each. Only those units produced prior to June 1986 by the Wonder Unit of CBS Toys are affected by this recall.
Any "Wonder" horse with a silver label on the horse's belly, or with a number higher than 86207 stamped on its belly, is not affected by this recall. These toys were produced beginning in June 1986 from a modified mold.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
