NEW YORK (CNNfn) - Vtech Industries LLC is recalling about 34,000 toy baby phones. The toy phones have a ball-shaped antenna that can detach, presenting a choking hazard to young children.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Wheeling, Ill.-based Vtech Industries have received nine reports of the plastic ball detaching from these phones. One child reportedly started to choke on one of these plastic balls.

graphicThe toy is called Little Smart Soft Songs Baby Phone. The cordless baby phone has a mirror, four colorful talking musical buttons, a ringing light-up phone button and a red on/off button. The phone is yellow with a blue padded border and a yellow ball-shaped antenna. A label on these toys reads "Soft Songs Baby Phone 39100." Writing on the phone includes "VTECH" and "Little Smart Soft Songs Baby Phone."

Wal-mart stores nationwide sold the toy phones from January 2000 through May 2000 for about $10.

Consumers should immediately take these toy phones away from children. For more information, contact VTech at (800) 521-2010 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday. Back to top
