This recall involves the Toulouse-LapTrec magnetic sketchboard, which has a white plastic writing surface bordered by either a red or brown plastic frame, and has a bean bag type backing. The sketch board has four animal shapes across the top - a rabbit, dog, cat and duck. The multicolored magnetic pen is affixed to the front of the sketchpad. The model number BX1026 (red frame) or BX1027 (brown frame) can be found on a paper wrapper that comes with the product at the time it was purchased.
Consumers should immediately take recalled sketchboards away from children and contact Battat to receive a free replacement sketchboard.
Battat has received 19 reports of the magnetic tip separating from the pen. No injuries have been reported.
