Tiny Love Baby Wind Chime Recall Issued After Infant Injury Reports
About 800,000 Tiny Love wind chime toys have been recalled in the United States and Canada after a 2-year-old was injured by one of the chimes’ sharp metal rods.
The wind chime recall was announced on February 10 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after the distributors, Tiny Love Inc. and the Maya Group Inc., received at least five reports of babies pulling the wind chimes apart and exposing the sharp metal rods. The injured child suffered a puncture wound to the cheek from one of the exposed rods.
The recall affects 600,000 wind chimes sold in the U.S. and 200,000 sold in Canada. The Tiny Love wind chime toys were sold separately, and with the Gymini Kick & Play Activity Gym and Tiny Smarts Gift Sets. The recalled wind chime models include the Baby Wind Chime, Baby Wind Chime – Ocean, Tiny Smarts – Baby Bunny, the Wind Chime – Duck (sold with the Gymini Kick and Play Activity Gym), Wind Chime – Louie, Wind Chime – Ella, and the Bunny Wind Chime sold with the Tiny Smarts Gift Set.
