The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Hallmark Marketing Company LLC, of Kansas City, Miss., has announced a voluntary recall of 6,000 itty bittys® baby plush stacking toys because the toys have fabric hats and bows that can detach, posing a choking hazard.
Hallmark has received one report of the toy’s fabric bow detaching. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the itty bittys baby Disney-licensed plush animal stacking toys with rattling rings. The toys measure 10 inches by 7.5 inches by 9.5 inches. They have a yellow base stand with a post and four rattling rings that slide on and off the post. The red, blue, pink and purple rings have Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck and Daisy Duck characters attached to them. Three of the four Disney-licensed characters are wearing a small plush, fabric hat or bow. The Hallmark logo and “itty bittys” are printed on a sewn-on tag attached to the toy’s base.
