Crib Mobiles Recalled Due to Injury Hazard

With their moving lights and soft lullabies, crib mobiles can help lull infants to sleep. However, parents who use Skip Hop crib mobiles should be aware of a recent recall

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Skip Hop Inc. is recalling approximately 3,500 mobiles because the strap attaching the product to the crib rail can break. This poses an injury hazard if the product falls on the infant in the crib. Skip Hop has received eight reports of broken straps. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.

For parents who are concerned that they may own a defective crib mobile, the recall includes the Skip Hop Moonlight & Melodies projection crib mobiles. They were sold at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and other independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and skiphop.com from July 2015 to November 2015 for approximately $65.

As the CPSC describes in its recall notice, the mobile has a white plastic arm that attaches to the side of a crib with four blinking, glowing leaves with stuffed animal attachments. The mobile also has a projector on the top of the mobile that projects stars on the ceiling and plays eight nursery lullabies. The dangling stuffed animals on the mobile include a yellow and gray giraffe, a green turtle with a gray and white polka-dot shell, a brown and tan monkey and a gray and white striped owl. The mobiles measure 17.5 inches long by 14 inches wide by 22 inches tall. SKIP HOP and the model number 185509 are printed on the back of the mobile base.

Due to the risk of injury associated with the defective product, parents should immediately stop using the recalled mobiles. They can then contact Skip Hop to receive a $75 coupon towards the purchase of a new Skip Hop product.
