RECALL:Guidecraft Recalls Children's Puppet Theatres Due to Lead paint Violation

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Guidecraft Inc. of New Jersey, yesterday announced a voluntary recall of about 5,400 Tabletop Puppet Theaters. Surface paints on the puppet theater’s wooden panels contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard. There were no reported incidents or injuries. The recalled puppet theater has red panels on the front and sides and a chalkboard signboard on top. The puppet theater measures about 24-inches in length, 6-inches in width and about 28-inches in height.
They were sold at specialty toy stores, gift shops, catalogs and Web sites nationwide from June 2006 through August 2007 for about $35 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled puppet theaters away from children and contact Guidecraft to receive a replacement theater or another product of equal value. For additional information, contact Guidecraft toll-free at 888-824-1308 between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday, or visit
