Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves Giggles International Animated Sing-Along Monkey Toys.

The recalled Monkey Toy is made of brown and beige plush material and is about 9 inches tall. The Toy is designed to hold a song book titled, “5 Little Monkeys” and to sing the song when activated. The Monkey Toy was sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores.

A red music note is on the bottom of the Monkey’s right foot and the face of a child with its hands covering its eyes are on the bottom of the Monkey’s left foot. The recalled sing-along Monkeys were manufactured between 6/7/2014 and 7/5/2014 and have the batch code of GP1410028. The manufacture date is printed in the “M/D/YYYY” format and the batch code is printed on the bottom of a white fabric label attached near the base of the Monkey’s tail.

The Monkey Toys came in a tan colored box with words. “Animated Sing-Along Monkey”, “Sing along with me!” and “I play peek-a-boo with you!” written on the front. The age advisory “For ages 3+” and the message that batteries are included are also on the front of the box.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CPSC, the battery compartment can reach temperatures up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit, posing a burn hazard. Giggles International has received two (2) reports of toys overheating and melting their battery compartments.

If you believe you have purchased the recalled Monkey Toy, please do not use them. Instead, kindly remove the product from your child’s area and return it to the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store store where you purchased it for a full refund.
