Description The baby jumper seats are called "Hop, Skip, Jumpers" and the construction toys are called "Big Action Construction Toys". The Hop, Skip, Jumper is an activity seat for babies to sit in while suspended from a doorway. There is a spring attached to a suspension strap, allowing babies to use their feet to bounce up and down, while being supported by the seat. Only model numbers 9144 and 9146 are being recalled. The model number is molded into the underside of the plastic tray attached to the soft seat. The jumper is red and blue, or all blue, with a bright yellow propeller decoration on the front of the seat. "Fisher-Price" is written on the front of the tray. The Big Action Construction toy is a large plastic construction set that features a rotating crane that sits on top of a construction site. The crane has a bucket that is attached by a 25-inch strap. The bucket can be raised and lowered by using a turning crank on the crane. The recalled Big Action Construction toys are model number 72028. The model number is on the underside of the toy. The toy has a brown base with a yellow and silver crane and a blue drawbridge. "Fisher-Price" is written on the crane. The toy has two construction vehicles and a number of boulders. Only models with a 25-inch strap attached to the crane are being recalled. 
Problem With the Hop, Skip, Jumpers, the spring that suspends the jumper seat from the doorway can break. Babies can fall to the ground and suffer serious injuries. With the Big Action Construction, children can wrap the 25-inch strap around their necks, posing a strangulation hazard.
