Toys R Us Swing Set Recall Follows Reports of Breaking, Falls

About 5,500 Playsafe Dartmouth swing sets sold at Toys R Us stores have been recalled after a number of reports indicate that the seats may break and cause children to drop to the ground. 

The Toys R Us swing set recall was announced on August 30 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after the manufacturer, Pacific Cycle, received at least five reports where the seats broke. In some cases, children suffered minor injuries, bruises or scrapes, but the product defect could pose a risk of more serious injury.

The CPSC has deemed the swing sets to be a fall hazard because the plastic sling-style seats crack or split prematurely.

The recall affects the Playsafe Dartmouth Swing Set, model number 22-PS340, with date codes FSD0115AA and FSD0315AA. The sets have six metal legs and two yellow plastic swing-style seats, as well as a yellow plastic sliding board, two-person yellow plastic glider, yellow plastic trapeze and also includes a four-person lawn swing with footboard and yellow plastic seats. The model numbers and date codes are located in the owner’s manual.

The swing sets were sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores nationwide for about $270 from January through May of this year.

The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the sling-style swing seats and remove the seats from the swing set. Consumers can contact Pacific Cycle for free replacement seats and additional information by calling (877)564-2261, by visiting the website at or emailing the company at
