Descripción del Defecto: "Wonder" Spring Ride-On Horses Recalled By CBS NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 Note: Firm out of business. Do not use these products. Please discard or destroy these products. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   Originally issued October 15, 1987; Revised September 5, 2001   Release # 87061 CBS "Wonder" Spring Ride-On Horses Recalled WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, CBS Inc., New York, New York, announced a voluntary recall and replacement of the plastic bodies of its "Clippety Clop" "Comanche" and "Colt" ride-on toy "Wonder" horses because the plastic body may break during use. CBS has received 105 complaints that the body of the toy has broken without warning while being ridden, causing the rider to fall suddenly. Forty of these incidents resulted in injuries such as cuts, scrapes and bruises. The "Wonder" horse is a painted plastic riding toy, sometimes known as a hobby horse. The body of the horse is suspended by four springs from a tubular blue or blown metal frame. Children sit on these toys and rock or bounce while holding onto dowels attached to the horse's head. Over 114,000 of these ride-on toys, produced and distributed to retailers between March 1984 and May 1986, have been sold nationally for approximately $60 each. Only those units produced prior to June 1986 by the Wonder Unit of CBS Toys are affected by this recall. Any "Wonder" horse with a silver label on the horse's belly, or with a number higher than 86207 stamped on its belly, is not affected by this recall. These toys were produced beginning in June 1986 from a modified mold. Consumers should immediately stop using this product and retailers should immediately remove the product from sale. The firm is out of business and a replacement is no longer available. Please discard or destroy the recalled product. Consumers may also call the Commission's toll-free hotline number at 800-638-CPSC for assistance in identifying products subject to this recall. A teletypewriter number for the hearing impaired is (301) 595-7054.
