Release # 95-121

WASHINGTON, D.C. - CPSC, Playskool, of Pawtucket, R.I., is voluntarily recalling 123,000 1-2-3 Swings. Although most consumers have not had a problem with the 1-2-3- Swing, 50 consumers have reported that children have fallen out of the swing, resulting in injuries ranging from bumps and bruises to a broken nose.

The swings can convert to three styles: infant swing, chair swing, and seat swing. As an infant swing, the restraint shield on the front of the swing may appear to be locked in place when it is not. As a result, children can sustain injuries by falling from the swing.

CPSC Chairman Ann Brown said, "I commend Playskool for bringing this issue to CPSC's attention and working voluntarily with CPSC to recall the swings quickly."

The 1-2-3 Swing is made of plastic with a blue seat, yellow chair back, red T-shaped restraint, green trim, and yellow ropes. It is packaged in a blue cardboard box, which reads in part, "PLAYSKOOL 1-2-3 Swing ... Toddler... Preschool ... Infant ... 6 mos. - 8 yrs. ... 1 Infant Swing ... 2 Chair Swing ... 3 Seat Swing.." The swing was sold nationwide between March and May 1995 through wholesale and retail outlets for about $25.00.

Consumers who own a 1-2-3 Swing should stop using the swing immediately and return the product to the store where purchased for a full refund. Consumers with questions can call Playskool toll-free at (800) PLAYSKL (752-9755) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.
