Sassy recalls about 45,000 Hug N' Tug Baby Toys.
The beads inside the clear plastic sphere at the center of the toys can be released and pose a choking hazard to young children.
The recalled toys for infants can be attached to a stroller or car seat using a ring connector on the toy's head.
They have arms and legs that can be easily pulled back and forth for play.
The toys are approximately 12 inches tall, made of multi-colored fabrics, contain rattle beads inside a clear plastic sphere body and have the face of either a puppy or monkey.
They were sold by Mass merchandisers such as Toys R Us and Target, independent specialty stores nationwide and online retailers such as Amazon.com and Carters.com between July 2012 and October 2012 for Sassy-branded models; and from August 2011 to October 2012 for the Carter's-branded models. Carter's-branded models were also sold in Carter's retail stores. The Sassy-branded models sold for approximately $8 and the Carter's-branded models for approximately $14.
Consumers should immediately take the toys from children and contact Sassy for instructions on how to return the product for a free replacement toy.
