Imaginarium Recalls Toy "Fun Music Center"

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Imaginarium of Walnut Creek, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 500 fun music center toys.

The toy was identified during a joint CPSC and U.S. Customs surveillance at the port of Long Beach, Calif. CPSC testing found that the toy contained small parts that present a potential choking hazards to young children.

The multicolored toy is battery operated and consists of a keyboard with eight keys, three drum heads, one cymbal, two bells, and two drumsticks. The toy has a decal labeled "FUN MUSIC CENTER." The toy is 11 inches long, eight inches wide, and eight inches high. The toy is packaged in a cardboard container labeled in part, "FUN MUSIC CENTER...No. 1062...MADE IN CHINA."

The toy was imported from China and sold nationwide from February 1994 to November 1994 at Imaginarium retail stores for $22.95.

The toy should be taken away from young children immediately and returned to the store where purchased for a full refund.

Neither CPSC nor Imaginarium is aware of any injuries involving this toy; this recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.
