RECALL: Guidecraft Children’s Play Theaters Due to Tip-over Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Guidecraft Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of about 2,150 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater Toys because they can unexpectedly tip over during play, posing an entrapment hazard to young children.

Guidecraft has received two reports of tip-over incidents, including one report of a child who suffered minor contusions and abrasions.

This recall involves all 4-in-1 dramatic play theaters with model number G51062. The model number is printed on a sticker affixed to the bottom of the center crossbar and on the assembly instructions. The toy has two interchangeable panels with different themes on each side: a puppet theater and diner, or a doctor’s office and post office. An assembled play theater measures 4-feet high by 3-feet wide and weighs about 46 pounds.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled product from children and contact Guidecraft at (888) 824-1308 between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at to receive a refund or a replacement product.
