Sick and Tired of Toy Recalls? Here’s Another One Minnesota.
Jungle Jumperoo Recalled Because Of Unsafe Lead Levels!
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of the LARGE Jungle Jumparoo because they learned a small batch of their toys has too much lead in them. There are about 350 in the recall, please keep reading to see if the one you have is the one to return.
"This recall involves Jungle Jumparoo children’s toys. The toys have a blue metal base, a black rubber tube, and two blue, green, red, and yellow vertical metal poles to hold onto when jumping. They measure 77 inches tall by 55 inches wide by 55 deep. Only the large Jungle Jumparoo toys are included in this recall. The Jungle Jumparoo logo and the phrase “a wild way to bounce” are printed on the tube."
According to the CPSC, if you have one, stop using it immediately. Get in touch with Jungle Jumparoo (here at JungleJumparoo.com and 888-980-5867) and they'll tell you how to properly dispose it and fill you in on how to get free replacement poles, including shipping. Jungle Jumparoo is contacting all known purchasers directly, but you never know how complete those lists are or maybe you got it from a friend.
They were for sale online at Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Fun and Function, JungleJump, The Grommet Flaghouse, and Wayfair from November 2018 through March 2019 for about $350.
