Small Small World, of Englewood, NJ, is voluntarily recalling about 60,000 plush rabbit toys sold under The Boyds Collection label. The eyes on these toys could detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The recall involves two styles of plush rabbit toys: Natalie Nibblenose and Nickie Nibblenose. They are both about 6 inches tall with movable joints, and have bows around their necks. Sewn-on tags on these toys read, "THE BOYDS COLLECTION" and "MADE IN CHINA." Natalie Nibblenose is a white chenille hare. A cardboard tag attached to her with string reads, "NATALIE NIBBLENOSE" and "STYLE # 573300-01." Nickie Nibblenose is a French vanilla and white hare. A cardboard tag attached to him with string reads, "NICKIE NIBBLENOSE" and STYLE #573303-03." Specialty stores sold these toys nationwide from December 1999 through September 2000 for about $6.
Consumers should take these toys away from young children immediately, and return them to the store where purchased for a free replacement toy. For more information, call Small Small World at (800) 485-7211 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
