The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports of a recall involving Mini Stars building sets. Plastic knobs can break from the center of the stars, posing a choking hazard to young children.
See HSW Product Details tab for specifics on the affected items.
CPSC and Edushape have received two reports of the knobs breaking off from the center of the stars. No injuries have been reported.
In the U.S., affected items were sold at small retail stores nationwide, online at Toys R Us.com, Amazon.com and CSN on walmart.com from January 2007 through December 2009 for between $10 and $50. Because related recalled toys (Giant Stars) by the same firm were distributed in Canada, there is a good probability that the Mini Stars were also distributed in Canada. HSW Corrective Action:Consumers should immediately take the recalled Mini Star building sets away from children and contact Edushape for a free replacement set or credit towards another Edushape product of equal or lesser value.
