The recall addresses a problem that the manufacturer may have corrected and the
new units being sold have been modified. You can always buy it and check for the recall
when you get home or on your phone at the store. Recall most often include a free kit
to modify the unit and comply with a safety requirement. I do caution that some recall
kits are cumbersome and make the item unsuitable for it's intended use or downright
ugly as a cosmetic addition but it is required. Do some homework first and get just what you want.

Need assembly instructions for the Simplicity 4 in 1 convertible bassinet. Model #3040LAU. Yes, we know it was recalled. Thank you, Angela Larson


Angela, you know children have died in these? DEAD. It is also illegal to resell
a recalled item that has this fatality issue. Please see the light. Take the bassinet back
to Walmart, get a full refund (no receipt required) and buy a new safe one. PLEASE!

I have a bassinet that has the top rail on the opposite side of the one with the mobile on missing. where could I find this piece? It is a Simplicity for children bassinet.


Most of these are recalled. Call your local Walmart and have them check the Model number and date
of manufacture to see. If it is recalled they will give you a full refund of the original retail price, no receipt required. Or post the model number and date of MFG here and I will look it up for you.

Is this crib on the recall


Yes it is under the recall.

The death of two more infants trapped in Simplicity bassinets prompted the Consumer Product Safety Commission to re-announce its August 2008 recall of the child beds on Thursday.

The recall was first announced last year after the death of two other children. A total of four deaths have been reported to the commission involving Simplicity bassinets.

The recall includes more than 900,000 bassinets sold as far back as 2001 and as recently as last year.

The hazard in the Simplicity 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets stems from metal bars spaced farther apart than federal standards allow, the commission said.

If Velcro-attached fabric that covers metal bars on the bassinet is attached improperly, a pocket can be created where children can become trapped, the commission said.

Children also can become stuck between the bassinet's metal bars without the fabric attached, the agency said.

In the latest two incidents, a 6-month-old girl in Fort Worth died in January after she was trapped between two exposed bars on the bassinet.

In September 2008, a 2-month-old girl in Demorest, Ga., suffocated when she was caught in a pocket of fabric, which was not properly secured to the bassinet.

The commission also received two other reports involving 10-week-old and 3-month-old infants whose heads became trapped between the bassinet's lower bar and mattress. The infants were freed and uninjured, the commission said.

The recalled bassinets were manufactured before May 18, 2008, and include some sold under the Graco brand and others with Winnie the Pooh characters printed on the bed's fabric.

Simplicity is owned by children's furniture manufacturer SFCA Inc. of Reading, Pa.

The model numbers for recalled Simplicity bassinets are: 3000, 3010, 3011, 3012, 3013, 3014, 3015, 3016, 3017, 3020, 3025, 3026, 3027, 3030, 3040, 3045, 3046, 3047, 3050, 3060, 3070, 3111, 3112, 343-8363, 343-8399, 5730, 5750, 8383, 9250 and TD250, the commission said.

Model numbers on the recalled Graco-branded bassinets include: 3000CL, 3010HAV, 3011WHE, 3011WHK, 3014NGS, 3016LAU, 3017NCB, 3025C, 3030SAR, 3050SAR, 3111DPC, 3111ZOL, 3112DOH, 3122TGT, 5730FKB, 5750SAR, 8393, Graco said in its own recall statement.

Owners of the recalled bassinets can return the beds to the stores where they bought them, the safety commission said. Sources: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-crib-recall21-2009aug21,0,4022989.story

You can often find model numbers for recalled cribs on manufacturer labels on the crib's underside, headboard, or footboard or on mattress support boards. If you're unsure, call the manufacturer.

Replacement mobile for Simplicity for children bassinet "Winnie the Pooh"


They company simplicity for children is making the exact same products as simplicity with the exact same models contact them, if you get no where contact you local better business bureau, as they still do have the parts and are required to provide you with parts as they took over the company. I have heard of many others who have been told "they no longer have the parts" but with in days of contacting their local BBB they receive the parts that they "no longer had" THEY DO EXIST THEY JUST DO NOT WANT TO STAND BEHIND THE OLD NAMES PRODUCTS all they did was go out of business and reopen under a new name Simplicity for Children they are still alive and well I think they are just trying to get out of the bad press associated with their old name, since they were the makers of the 10,000+ cribs recalled just over a year ago, people started no trusting the name, so hence the name change and the "we are not them" routine. I think it is nonsense, they still make the exact same products under and new name, so they do have parts they just do not want to deal with it
This bassinet really has been recalled due to strangulation hazards since two babies have died in it this way, do yourself the safe and easy solution, just take it back to the store for a full refund. Save a babies life and your sanity in not having to deal with this crazy stupid company who will not deal with their mistakes made under their old name (hint their address never changed, just their name!)
