Posted on

Mega Profit Trading, located in China, has issued a voluntary recall of the 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater toy due to a risk of tipping, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Health Canada. This recall affects approximately 2,150 units throughout the United States and Canada. The 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater is distributed by Guidecraft Incorporated, located in Winthrop, Minnesota.

The 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater has been known to fall down during play, exposing children to the danger of being trapped underneath it. Two incidents of the theater tipping over have been reported so far, in one case the 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater, which is 4-feet tall and 3-feet wide and weighs approximately 46 pounds, is alleged to have caused minor bumps and bruises to the child.

The recall affects 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theaters with the model number G51062. The model number can be seen on the assembly instructions, or on the bottom of the theater’s center crossbeam. The theater features two exchangeable panels, one panel featuring a diner on one side and a puppet theater on the other, and one panel featuring a post office and a doctor’s office.

Parents are urged to take the 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater away from their children and contact Guidecraft for a replacement or refund.
