Other toys recalled are 8,900 of Big Big World 6-in-1 Bongo Band toys. The CPCS says surface paints on the toys contain excessive levels of lead, which violates the federal law prohibiting lead paint on children's toys.

The recalled toys have two bongos, including one with a yellow and green plastic drum base with a blue drum surface. The other bongo is yellow and green plastic drum base with an orange drum surface with “It’s a Big, Big World” printed on it. The toys were sold with animal shaped accessories including a monkey, bird, tambourine and drum stick. The toys have product number K9343 inside the orange drum. A date code between 139-7SH and 232-7SH is printed on the drum’s orange ring surface. Bongo Band toys included in this recall must have both the product number and date code.
