CPSC, Jack Rabbit Creations Recall Wooden Stacking Toys

PRODUCT: Wooden Stacking Toys - Jack Rabbit Creations Inc., of Atlanta, Ga., is recalling about 9,000 hand-painted, wooden stacking toys called Stacking King. These stacking toys have seven interlocking multi- colored, doughnut-shaped pieces mounted on pegs. The pieces are green with blue pok-a-dots, orange with yellow stripes, and purple with green swirls. The bases of these toys have black and white checked squares. The top of the toy has a round, hand-painted face with a wooden yellow crown. A label on the toys packaging reads in part, "Stacking King," "Jack Rabbit Creations" and "Made in China." Specialty and Gift shops have sold these products from February 1999 through April 2000 for about $25.
