I was pretty surprised to see this recall this morning, as it took place on July 23, 2013 and I had not heard anything about it. Chances are you haven’t either. I’ve owned one of these jumpers from Baby Einstein several times over the past 5 years and have loved them. Funny enough though, it seems the “sun” was always the part of the product that we had problems with and that is why it is currently being recalled.
Produce Name: Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumpers
Sold at: Target, Toys R Us and other retails stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com between May 2010 and May 2013 for about $90.
Recall Date: July 23, 2013
Hazard: The “sun” toy attachment on the activity jumper can rebound with force and injure the infant, posing an impact hazard.

The yellow sun toy is attached to the seat frame on a flexible stalk with either three or five brightly colored rings.
