About 1,200 Rocking Horses made by Rocking Horse Depot have been recalled. The reins on the rocking horse bridle are long enough to form a loop around a child's head and neck, posing a strangulation hazard to young children.
The CPSC has received one report of a near strangulation incident involving a 21-month old girl who became entangled in the reins at her neck. The girl's parents freed her without injury.
This recall involves Rocking Horse Depot's small, medium and large rocking horses with bridles. The rocking horse has a hardwood frame and is covered with synthetic hide. Each rocking horse has fluffy mane and tail, and a leather Rocking Horse Depot emblem on the right side of the saddle.
The recalled toys were sold at RockingHorseDepot.com from November 2006 through December 2009 for between $105 and $185.
Consumers should immediately remove or cut the reins to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can also contact Rocking Horse Depot for instructions on how to remove the reins.
