Kids Station Inc. is recalling about 10,500 drum sets sold at Toys R Us. Small parts can break off during use, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The Fun Years Music Big Drum Musical Set includes a yellow and green drum with a clear plastic lid and a red one-piece carrying strap that doubles as a storage and carrying case for additional instruments. The drum measures 12 inches in diameter and about 7.5 inches in height.
The instruments stored in the drum include: purple drumsticks, yellow and red dumb-bell-shaped maracas, purple wrist bells, an orange recorder, a yellow harmonica, a red-rimmed tambourine and a yellow whistle. Only this musical set is part of this recall. A similar drum set sold at Toys R Us with a two piece strap and different musical toys is manufactured by a different company and is not being recalled.
The drum sets were sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores nationwide from August 2004 through December 9, 2004 for about $20.
Consumers should return the recalled Big Drum Musical Set to your nearest Toys R Us store for a refund.
