Tek Nek Toys Recalls Plush Rockers

Tek Nek Toys has recalled about 122,000 Plush Rocker Toys. The base of the rockers can become unstable and tip forward or backward, posing a fall hazard to children. Tek Nek Toys has received 35 reports of the rockers tipping over, including ten reports of injuries such as bumps, bruises and lacerations.

This recall involves eight models of the Rock 'N Ride plush rocker toys: brown pony, pink pony, pink unicorn, deluxe pony, deluxe bull, lil' penguin, lil' propeller plane and Clifford big red rocker. The toys have molded plastic rocker bases and were sold for children at least 18 months old and up to 65 lbs. When pressed, a button on the toy's ear, hat or dash activates songs and phrases. Rockers included in this recall have a date code from July 26, 2007 through December 29, 2007; the date codes are printed on a sticker inside the battery compartment.

The rocker toys were made in China and sold at Wal-Mart, Toys "R" Us, Kmart, Target, Atwoods, and Pamida stores nationwide and Internet retailers from September 2007 through March 2008 for about $30.

Consumers should immediately take these rockers away from young children and contact Tek Nek Toys for a free replacement base. For additional information, contact Tek Nek Toys toll-free at (888) 686-2728 anytime, or visit the firm's Web site at www.teknektoys.com
