New York, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Toys R Us have voluntarily recalled Imaginarium Activity Walkers because of choking hazards the defective product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on March 13, 2013.
The product recall was issued after discovering that a small bolt and spacer that attaches each front wheel to the walker can detach, which poses a choking hazard to young children.
“The recalled Imaginarium Activity Walkers have a round wooden push handle on the top of a curved triangle-shaped wooden walker base with four wheels. There is a multi-colored metal xylophone with 2 triangle mallets, 1 multi-colored abacus and 1 scratch noise maker on the front of the walker. The walkers have multi-colored wooden, disc-shaped wheels. The walkers measure about 19 inches tall and about 13 inches wide. The recalled walkers have model number ‘Toys ‘R’ Us 5F5E972’ printed on the bottom of the activity walkers. Barcode number ‘3700217300319’ is printed on the bottom of the activity walker box,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to return the Imaginarium Activity Walkers to a Toys R Us store for a full refund or store credit.
