Injuries prompt Baby Einstein recall

Don't Waste Your Money


When it comes to brand names that parents of newborns trust, Baby Einstein is one of those names that makes the list.

But 400,000 its activity centers are on the recall list instead.
    
The sun toy on the jumper can bounce back with too much force, and injury a baby, the company says. The company has reports of 60 injuries, including one baby who suffered a skull fracture.

This involves Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers.

They have a blue fabric seat surrounded by a metal frame, with small hanging toys.

They were sold at Target, Toys r Us and other stores since may 2010 for around $90.

If you have one, stop using it and check with the store, Baby Einstein, or the CPSC's recall page for more information.
