This play yard recall affects the following Kolcraft distributed brands:
Kolcraft Travelin’ Tot, Sesame Street, Jeep, Care Bear, Eric Carle, Carter’s, and Contours The model numbers are listed below.
The play yard’s side rail may not properly latch, which poses a fall hazard to infants and toddlers. When a child pushes against the rail it can unexpectedly unlatch.

Some of these recalled play yards will have a bassinet and/or baby diaper changing table. Some may also have a mobile, vibrating unit, or a parent organizer. The following model numbers are printed on white stickers on one of the play yard feet:
