Kids Station Toys Recalls Little Tikes Toy Cell Phones

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kids Station Toys International Ltd., announced a voluntary recall of the Little Tikes Chit ‘N Chat Toy Cell Phones due to a choking hazard. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The Little Tikes brand Chit ‘N Chat Toy Cell Phone resembles a flip-phone style cell phone and has a 10-key numeric button pad and three buttons with pictures of animals. All of the buttons make a sound when pressed. The toy phones are multi-colored and have a sticker on the back with model number KSL4010 (sold separately) or KSL8032, KSL8033, or KSL8051 (sold with other items). “Designed and Licensed by Kids Station Toys International Ltd.” is printed on the back of the toy phones. Toy phones with a screw visible on the hinge cover are not subject to the recall. These toys were sold at department, juvenile product, and drug stores nationwide from June 2006 through March 2008 for about $8 (individually) or about $20 (set).

Consumers should take these toy phones away from young children immediately and contact the firm for instructions on obtaining a free replacement. For additional information, contact Kids Station toll-free at (888) 620-0930 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.kidsstationtoys.com

Good. It upsets me every time I see a little kid playing with one of those. I wish they'd choose something a little more productive or educational instead of obsessing over cancer sticks.
