Edushape Ltd has recalled its Mini Stars building sets due to a potential choking hazard.
Approximately 18,000 Mini Stars building sets are included in this recall. Over the past year Edushape has recalled over 33,000 star building sets, including a Giant Starbuilder and Giant Stars building sets recall in September 2010. The most recent recall pertains to plastic knobs that may break off from the center of the stars in the Mini Stars building sets, resulting in a potential choking hazard.
The recalled Mini Stars were sold at retail stores nationwide and online at ToysRUs.com, Amazon.com, Walmart.com and others from January 2007 to December 2009 for $10-$50. The Mini Stars were sold as 12, 24, 36, 48, and 72 pieces per set and are constructed of a nontransparent plastic measuring 3” in diameter. One mini star has a ring-shaped center with six circular knobs extending out in an apparent snowflake shape. The Mini Stars have no identifiable markings stamped onto the plastic and were only available in red, green, blue, and yellow.
Consumers are encouraged to remove Mini Stars from a child’s possession and contact Edushape for a free replacement set or credit for another Edushape product.
