More than one million play yards made by Kolcraft and sold under a variety of names have been recalled. Brands include Kolcraft, Carter’s, Sesame Street, Jeep, Contours, Care Bears and Eric Carle. There’s a problem with the side rail, and children can fall out. Check to see if yours is affected at the CPSC.

    Maybe there is just something wrong with the children? Recall the kids. Maybe they all list to the side or something.

    I always wonder when this happens “are the engineers at these companies too stupid to design a five sided box?” I guess the answer is yes.

      @U-235: I wonder that, too. It’s not like child-safe designs for these things are new. Then again, maybe the engineers smart enough to do that are working elsewhere…

      @U-235: The engineers could have designed a quality product but when the contract is awarded to some factory in China to manufacture en masse…

    Is ‘play yard’ a new word for ‘play pen’, or is this a regional phrase?
