Description: Soft Walkin' Wheels Toy Vehicles Recall by Tonka NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: NYCHELLE WHITE JANUARY 29, 1997 (301) 504-7063 Release # 97-064 CPSC, Tonka Announce Recall of Soft Walkin' Wheels Toy Vehicles WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Tonka Corporation, a division of Hasbro Inc. of Pawtucket, R.I., is voluntarily recalling about 1 million Soft Walkin' Wheels (model 90165) toy vehicles, with serial numbers lower than 9528 or no serial number at all. The small wheel hubs can separate from the axle, creating a potential choking hazard. Tonka has received about 40 reports of wheel hubs separating from the axle, including two reports of children starting to choke. No injuries have been reported. Soft Walkin' Wheels are battery-powered, soft toy vehicles designed to move across floors in the home. They are covered in brightly colored nylon fabric and are available in five styles: dump truck, school bus, airplane, train, and fire truck. Soft Walkin' Wheels included in this recall have serial numbers lower than 9528 or do not have a visible serial number. The numbers are printed in blue ink on the sewn-in label that displays the toy's cleaning instructions, brand name, and model number. Major toy stores and mass merchandise outlets nationwide sold these toys beginning in January 1994 for about $15. Consumers should take these recalled toys away from children immediately. To receive a free replacement, consumers may call Tonka at 1 (800) 327-8264. Consumers may also return the toys to the store where purchased for a free replacement or full refund. Soft Walkin' Wheels (model 90165) with serial numbers 9528 and above; the Soft Walkin' Wheels Dalmatian, Dinosaur, or Pig; Soft Walkin' Tuggers; Soft Squeeze 'n Shine; and Soft Shakin' Wheels are not being recalled.
