The toys have oversized, plastic toy nails that can pose a choking hazard to young children, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Little Tikes has received one report of an 11-month-old boy who choked when one of the nails became lodged in his throat. The child was hospitalized and made a full recovery.

The plastic toy nail used in the sets is approximately 3¼ inches long by 1¼ inches in diameter and comes in red or blue.

The recalled toys were sold by various websites, including www.littletikes.com, and mass merchants nationwide from March 1994 to June 2009 for between $25 and $100.

The products were made in the United States and China.
