Arcotoys Offers Parts Exchange For Disney Donald Fun Farms And Disney World Airport Toys

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Arcotoys Inc., Westbury, New York, has announced a voluntary recall of certain toy vehicles and the character "Goofy" contained in the company's Disney Donald's Fun Farm, Item No., 6112, and Disney World Airport, Item No. 6113. The sets were sold nationwide from February 1, 1988 through February 8, 1989 for approximately $12.99 each.

Tests conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) revealed that the wheels attached to the vehicles' axles and Goofy's ears are small parts which can separate from the toys and present a potential choking hazard. Neither CPSC nor the company has received any reports or complaints of small parts separation or injury associated with these products.

Consumers should remove only the following items and return them to Arcotoys Inc., 800 Shemes Drive, Westbury, NY 11590 for an exchange with comparable vehicles and characters:

(1) Disney Donald's Fun Farm #6112:
-remove the four-wheel tractor

(2) Disney World Airport #6113:
-remove the four-wheel blue, yellow and red vehicles which have blue or yellow wheels; and
-remove "Goofy" who has long ears, gold hat and shoes, orange shirt, green vest, brown pants, and white hands.

The Fun Farm toy was imported from Hong Kong, and identified by U.S. Customs at the Ports of Buffalo and Seattle during joint surveillance with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
