Littlest Pet Shop Tea Set

Kid Dimension Inc. (a subsidiary of Hasbro Inc.) voluntarily recalled this particular item (No. 27310) in 1994. The reason cited was that the "Hangimal" animals attached to the teapot and sugar bowl were removable and thus "posed a potentially serious choking hazard to young children." The figures on the cups and creamer were not seen to be a problem as they were permanently affixed. To resolve this problem the company modified product slightly and resold it in packaging that was modified to indicate it was the post-recall version. Specifically, a label was attached that read "Contains No Small Parts." (See photo of box below).

How to tell if your teaset is the Recalled Version:
The teapot and the sugar bowl have animals attached to them, as seen in the catalog photo shown above. The tea sets issued post-recall did not come with the two previously problematic animals at all. (Notice the circular blue "Contains No Small Parts." sticker placed on the post-recall box where the lid of the sugar bowl - with white bunny - should be). That seems to be the only difference between the two sets.
