Buying natural toys does give a parent some peace of mind; however, sometimes even natural toys are recalled. The Peek-A-Boo Ball is one such natural toy, and the ecochildsplay family has it! We purchased our Peek-A-Boo Ball through Ecobaby, not Hearthsong. This fun wooden toy was recalled, because the wood can crack, allowing the small wooden people to fall out and pose a choking hazard. 22,500 Peek-A-Boo Balls were sold between 2001-2004, so we can’t be the only family affected. I plan to keep our Peek-A-Boo Ball, but I will inspect it often for cracks. My son is not very oral anymore, so I feel we can keep this great toy.
and Magic Cabin both provide recall information on their websites. Both companies offer refunds and discounts towards the next purchase for recalled toys.
