Cradle Gliders Recall

Posted: Updated:

Dream On Me is recalling its Cradle Gliders.

Dream On Me and the Consumer Product Safety Commission say the mattress support board can fall out or slide out of the bottom of the cradle glider posing a risk that babies can fall out and suffer injuries.

700 were sold online only through K-Mart, Kohl's, Sears, Toys R Us and Walmart from October 2011 through June 2013 for about $130.

There have been reports of two incidents while infants were asleep inside the cradle. A one-month old infant fell to the floor when the mattress support board partially fell out, but the child was uninjured. A second report involved a four-month old infant who did not fall out of the cradle after the mattress support board became partially disengaged.

Consumers are asked to immediately stop using the recalled cradles and contact Dream On Me to obtain a free repair kit. Instructions for assembly will be included in the repair kit. 

Contact Dream On Me toll-free at (877) 201-4312 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday or online at www.dreamonme.com  and click on the Recalls tab for more information.

The recall involves the Lullaby Cradle Glider manufactured by Dream On Me Inc.  The cradle is made of solid pine with slats on all four sides and a base that has a gliding side-to-side motion. The inner dimensions of the cradle measure 34.5 inches by 20.5 inches and includes a mattress pad and four wheels for easy movement.  The cradle is sold in one design, four colors 640-C, cherry; 640-W,white; 640-E, espresso; and 640-N, natural. A label identifying the date of manufacture as October 2011 is located on the mattress support board.
