The climbing level platforms were designed too far apart, posing a fall hazard to children who can fall climbing from one level to the next.
This recall involved Spider Climb enclosed vertical rope and plastic platform playground climbers installed in approximately 200 McDonald’s Restaurant Play Places. The climbers are designed with plastic platforms, ropes, cables and chains for children to scale inside a multi-level enclosed tower assembly.
Soft Play has contacted all purchasers directly and installed all additional platforms free of charge to reduce the distance between platforms.
There have been 37 incidents resulting in 34 reports of injuries.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related 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 injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
