The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall covers two Bunnies by the Bay wheeled pull-along toys: a brown dog named Bud and a cream-colored bunny named Skipit. Both are about eight inches high and they cost around $30 each. The toys feature Bud or Skipit on four wheels and they come with a pull cord.

The CSPC says no choking incidents have been reported.

The toys were sold at gift and specialty stores and through Bunniesbythebay.com and amazon.com between February and April. They were made in China. There were about 800 sold in the United States and 10 in Canada, the CSPC said.
