The Baby Einstein Activity Jumper, sold at retailers including Target and Amazon, has been recalled to the tune of 400,000 units after safety experts found that the jumper causes injury to toddlers by hitting them right in the face.
Baby Einstein has been making toys that purportedly help children with their development for some time now. Recently, the company had to recall their popular line of early childhood development DVDs in the past when it was found that they actually caused language regression, and now they’re dealing with yet another recall.
Let’s review the facts about the Baby Einstein Activity Jumper recall and how you can keep your baby safe:
The Sun Attachment Is Dangerous
The Baby Einstein Activity Jumper has a bouncy seat so that babies can bob safely up and down, and it’s got a ton of colorful attachments and hanging things that your baby can play with. They should be safe for youngsters, but they’re not.
One of these particular attachments is a spring-loaded plastic sun that kids can bounce back and forth. Apparently, this sun packs a little too much punch, literally. It’s been reported to be hitting kids in the face, causing injuries like bruising and even a cracked skull in one instance.
Says The Inquisitr:
“The Consumer Product Safety Commission said today that it has received more than 100 complaints from consumers who bought the product, reporting in excess of 60 injuries to infants.”
How to Know If Your Child is At Risk
Since this is a serious recall — and one that’s actually coming after injuries have been reported – parents are advised make sure that they don’t have the specific model that’s been recalled.
The recalled product is the Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper, and the specific model number is 90564. If you’re not sure if you own one of the recalled units, find the serial number by checking the tag directly underneath the jumper.
If you’ve got this particular model number in your home, you might want to keep your kids away from it.
This product was sold at a lot of major retailers, like Target and Amazon, and was sold between May of 2012 and May of 2013.
The product itself was supplied by a company called Kids II, and you can reach them at 877-235-7056 to talk to them about getting the problem resolved.
If you just so happen to have one of the models that was recalled, you can call Kids II on the phone. The company is reportedly sending new, child safe sun attachments to owners of the recalled Baby Einstein Activity Jumper.
