WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fisher-Price, of East Aurora, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling baby jumper seats and preschool toys. About 882,000 Hop, Skip, Jumpers are being recalled along with about 267,000 Big ActionTM Construction toys.
Recall of Hop, Skip, Jumpers
The Hop, Skip, Jumper is an activity seat for babies to sit in while suspended from a doorway. There is a spring attached to a suspension strap, allowing babies to use their feet to bounce up and down, while being supported by the seat. The spring that suspends the jumper seat from the doorway can break. Babies can fall to the ground and suffer serious injuries.
Fisher-Price has received 80 reports of the springs breaking. Twenty babies have been injured. The injuries include nine lacerations to heads, five of which required stitches or staples, a dislocated tailbone, a black eye and bumps, bruises and scrapes.
Only model numbers 9144 and 9146 are being recalled. The model number is molded into the underside of the plastic tray attached to the soft seat. The jumper is red and blue, or all blue, with a bright yellow propeller decoration on the front of the seat. "Fisher-Price" is written on the front of the tray. Fisher-Price will help consumers determine if they have a recalled jumper.
The Hop, Skip, Jumpers were sold by mass merchandise, juvenile products and discount stores from January 1987 through January 1994 for about $25.
Consumers should stop using the jumpers immediately. Fisher-Price will provide a free repair kit with a new, suspension strap to support the jumper seat if the spring breaks. The repair can be done quickly and easily in the home.
