Giggles International recalled their Animated Sing-Along Monkey toy, sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores. The battery compartment has the potential to over heat and can reach temperatures up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit, posing a burn hazard to the child.
There’ve been no reported injuries, but Giggles International has received two reports of toys overheating and melting their battery compartments. Parents are urged to take the toy away from children and remove the batteries. They can then return the toy to any Cracker Barrel Old Country Store or contact Giggles International for a full refund.
This recall involves about 13,000 Giggles International Animated Sing-Along Monkey toys, made of brown and beige plush material and about 9 inches tall. The toy is designed to hold a song book titled “5 Little Monkeys” and to sing the song when activated. A red music note is on the bottom of the monkey’s right foot and the face of a child with its hands covering its eyes are on the bottom of the money’s left foot. The monkey toys came in a tan colored box with words “Animated Sing-Along Monkey,” “Sing along with me!” and “I play peek-a-boo with you!” on the front, including the age advisory – “For ages 3+” – and and a notification for parents that batteries also came in the box.
The recalled toys were manufactured between 6/7/2014 and 7/5/2014 and have batch code GP1410028. Both the manufacture date in the M/D/YYYY format and batch code are printed on the bottom of a white fabric label attached near the base of the monkey’s tail.
These toys were purchased exclusively from Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores nationwide, September 2014 to October 2014 for an average price of $45.
