for all of you with kids ( toy recall )

Toy Tool Benches Recalled After 2 Deaths

POSTED: 9:36 am EDT September 22, 2006

Playskool is recalling about 255,000 tool-bench toys after the deaths of two young boys.

The announcement came Monday from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The children, one who was 19 months old and one who was 2 years old, suffocated when plastic toy nails sold with the "Team Talkin' Tool Bench" became lodged in their throats.

Playskool is conducting a voluntary recall, targeting the toy nails, hoping to prevent any further problems.

Consumers are urged to take the oversized nails away from children immediately.

The toy benches have been sold since October of last year for about $35 each.

Playskool is a unit of Hasbro.

The maker says that the toys are intended for children age 3 and older, but it is voluntarily conducting a recall as a precaution.

The Team Talkin' Tool Bench is a 20-inch tall plastic toy tool bench with an animated red toy saw, a yellow toy drill and a blue toy vice. The toy talks and makes various sound effects, including tool sounds.

The product also includes a toy hammer, screwdriver, two plastic screws, two plastic nails and pieces to build a small toy plane.

Consumers can return the nails and get a $50 certificate. For additional information, call Playskool at 800-509-9554 anytime or visit

i was unlucky enough to actually do CPR on the 2yr old at clear lake hospital, he was from league city. LCPD actually had to remove the nail from the kids throat with a gerber multi-tool. If one of the parents on here have this toy, just throw the thing away, its not worth it.

Good looking out, Brian.
"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "
