Playskool Busy School Bus Product Recall

Playskool Recalls To Replace Certain Units Of Its Busy School Bus

Playskool is voluntarily recalling to replace around 1,000 Busy School Bus toys. On certain units the yellow "awning" piece above the bus' door can break loose, posing a potential choking hazard to young children.

There have been five reports in the United States of the yellow 'awning' piece breaking. No injuries have been reported. There have been no reports from consumers in New Zealand of the yellow awning piece breaking.

Only item number 5527 toys with date codes 91671 through 91883 are being recalled to replace. The item number and date code are printed on the bottom of the toy. A yellow Playskool logo is imprinted on one side and "MADE IN CHINA" imprinted on the bottom.

The company is asking customers who have purchased the toy, within the date codes, to send it to: Freepost 63705, Playskool New Zealand, PO Box 100 940, North Shore Mail Centre, Auckland. A replacement product will be supplied free of charge.

Playskool's Busy School Bus toy is an 8½ inch-long yellow plastic school bus-shaped toy with a carry handle and blue wheels. The front of the Busy School Bus toy has a smiling face and a male figure that moves up and down when a child rolls the toy. A bell rings when the toy is rolled and when the sliding red stop sign is moved back and forth. One side of the toy features a green door with a red Playskool logo and a yellow awning piece. When the door is opened, a picture of a child with animals is revealed.

For any enquiries please call Playskool's Freephone Information Line on 0508 HASBRO (427 276) between the hours of 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
