RECALL: Wooden Puzzles Are A Choking Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Small World Toys of California, today announced a voluntary recall of more than 75,000 “Sounds on the Farm” and “Sounds on the Go” puzzles. The knobs on the recalled puzzle pieces can come off, posing a choking hazard to young children. Small World Toys has received 42 reports of the knobs detaching from the puzzle pieces. No injuries have been reported. The recalled involves two separate wooden-knobbed puzzles that make sounds. “Sounds on the Farm” and “Sounds on the Go” puzzles were sold under the Puzzibilities and Ryan’s Room brands. The wooden puzzles have four pieces in farm animal or vehicle shapes that make animal or motor sounds when the pieces are lifted by their knobs from the puzzle boards. “Sounds on the Farm” or “Sounds on the Go” is printed on the top left of the puzzle boards. “©2003 Small World Toys®” and the number 24101 or 24102 are printed at the bottom of the puzzles boards. Puzzibilities puzzles were sold at toy stores and various retailers nationwide and by catalogs from June 2003 through February 2007. Ryan’s Room puzzles were sold at Target Stores nationwide from January 2006 through February 2007. Both puzzles sold for about $16.
