Product name Baby Rattles
Description These baby rattles are shaped like a toy helicopter and stand 3 inches high. The rattle copter is made of white, red and blue hard plastic. Clear plastic spheres are incorporated into the copter’s body and tail sections, each sphere containing a spinning butterfly and duck in a liquid solution. “Royal Co. Ltd. Japan 198711 is imprinted on the bottom of the rattle copter. The toy helicopter rattle was available individually (“Crib Pals Tiny Tinkers Rattle Copter,” #SKN331139) and as a part of a three-piece rattle set (“Crib Pals Tiny Tinkers,” #SKN331244), which includes two other rattles: a carry-along clock and a dial-and-spin rattle. 
Problem The rattle copter has a tail section which is long enough to reach the back of an infants throat and possibly cause a choking hazard to infants. In addition, a small yellow cap at the top of the copter may come off and could pose a choking hazard to infants also.
