Basic Beat Egg-Shaker Toy Recalled

There was a recall on an egg-shaped toy instrument last week. The Basic Beat egg-shaker was recalled because the top of the egg is actually glued on and it can come apart from the egg. A child could choke on such a small piece if they put it in their mouth.

They are not to be mistaken for candy or chocolate eggs you get at Easter.

Only 6,500 of them were actually sold and they were available for sale in five colors: purple, yellow, blue, green and red. This doesn’t help the association with Easter.

They were made in China and sold at various music websites and stores as with between July 2012 and October 2012.

If you want to get a free replacement, you can contact West Music and get a free replacement, but there is little point in getting a refund since they were only $1.50.

The phone number for West Music is 1(800) 397-9378 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday to Friday and by e-mail at

They would be a terrible idea to use in an Easter egg hunt.
