Jack Rabbit Creations Recalls Wooden Stacking Toys

Jack Rabbit Creations Inc., of Atlanta, Ga., is recalling about 9,000 hand-painted, wooden stacking toys called Stacking King. The wooden peg in the black and white checked base could come off, presenting a choking hazard to young children.

These stacking toys have seven interlocking multi- coloreds, doughnut-shaped pieces mounted on pegs. The pieces are green with blue pok-a-dots, orange with yellow stripes, and purple with green swirls. The bases of these toys have black and white checked squares. The top of the toy has a round, hand-painted face with a wooden yellow crown. A label on the toys packaging reads in part, "Stacking King," "Jack Rabbit Creations" and "Made in China." Specialty and Gift shops have sold these products from February 1999 through April 2000 for about $25.

Consumers should take the toys away from young children immediately and contact the company for a free replacement base and a small toy. To order the base or for more information, call Jack Rabbit Creations toll free at (888) 376-5225.
