Guidecraft Play Theater Recall Issued After Child Injured

About 1,800 play theaters by Guidecraft have been recalled because they may tip over unexpectedly, posing a risk of injury for young children playing with the theater. 

The Guidecraft Play Theater recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on March 13, after the manufacturer, Guidecraft Inc., received at least two reports of incidents where the play theater tipped-over. One of the accidents resulted in a child suffering contusions and abrasions.

According to the CPSC, the play theaters pose an entrapment risk for children, because the tip-over incidents can occur unexpectedly during play.
