CPSC, Toys "R" Us Announce Recall of Children's Soap Craft Set

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Toys "R" Us, of Paramus, N.J., is recalling about 4,000 Baskets of Bubbles children's craft sets because of a potential fire hazard. If consumers melt pieces of the soap disks that come with the set in a microwave oven for 10 minutes, as instructed, the soap could ignite in the microwave. The instructions should have read 10 seconds rather than 10 minutes.

Toys "R" Us has received two reports of the soap and its container melting together in a microwave and one report of flames inside the oven. No injuries have been reported.

Baskets of Bubbles is a craft set for children 12 years of age and older for making baskets of small, scented glycerin soaps in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. The kit includes disks of colored, scented soap to cut into pieces to melt in a plastic measuring cup that comes with the set. Plastic molds to shape small bars of soap and two baskets to hold the finished soap are included.

Baskets of Bubbles sets are labeled "Arts & Crafts by Alex...Baskets of Bubbles." The sets are identified as Toys "R" Us number SKN 668192, manufacturer number 70, UPC 7-31346-00707-0.

Toys "R" Us stores nationwide sold the soap craft sets from November 1997 to December 1997 for about $15.

Consumers should immediately return the craft set to the nearest Toys "R" Us store for a full refund.
