WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Little Tikes Co., of Hudson, Ohio, is voluntarily recalling about 260 lobster toys attached to the activity tray of the Ocean Friends Stationary Entertainer. The antennae on the lobster toy can break, posing a choking hazard to young children.

No injuries or incidents have been reported. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The recall involves Ocean Friends Stationary Entertainer model 4629 GIG. The model number is located underneath the entertainer's tray. The green tray on the stationary entertainer is supported by three adjustable legs and has the words "Little Tikes" printed across the front. The seat, patterned with colorful pictures of sea animals, sits in the center of the unit and swivels so the child can play with the nine toys attached to the tray. The recalled lobster toy is red with black antennae. Only lobsters with black antennae are involved in this recall.

Toys R Us stores sold the stationary entertainer with the lobster toy nationwide between October 2001 through November 2001 for about $60

Consumers should remove the lobster toy from the entertainer immediately and contact Little Tikes for a replacement toy. For more information, consumers can contact Little Tikes toll-free at (888) 883- 7662 anytime or visit the firm's web site at
