Question about Simplicity for Children 4-in-1 Convertible 3045 Bassinet

Winnie the pooh 4-1 bassinet

My six month old granddaughter was strangled by the design of the Simplicity winnie the pooh 4-1 bassinet. Please warn everyone you can and if you have one, throw it away. There was another 4 month old girl that was strangled the same way September last year. That family has been trying ever since to get the product recalled. Simplicity has changed the model number but the design is the same. The problem is the drop down bar. The space between the bar is 4" and not the mandatory 2" like on cribs. I did not know that cribs are federally regulated but bassinets are not. Thank you for your help in getting this product recalled.

Tell any one you know to take it back to the store they got it at, they are giving full refunds, if given any hassle tell them to contact their local BBB or CSP, as Simplicity, may be "out of Business" but Simplicity for Children (their new Name) is the exact same company as you mentioned, still making the same products, to get help in getting their money back

they are the same company who made the cribs recalled under the drop side recall a year ago (Graco name was on some of the cribs) but they were all made by Simplicity or Simplicity for children

All that really happened is the company Simplicity was bought out by another company and took the new name Simplicity for Children, who is very much alive and well

The BBB has assisted many other consumers with getting parts for other items made by the old company from them New named company even though they said "the parts do not exist" they magically appear after the BBB calls them.

I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

I was about to sell one I never used and then just got the recall info from Gracobaby.com. PLEASE RETURN these to the store you bought them from, regardless if used or brand new! This includes all Days of Hunny bassinets purchased between 2001 and 2008.

Where on my Winnie the Pooh 4-in-1 Convertible Bassinet do I find the model number


Please note, Simplicity has gone out of business and the Simplicity Bassinets should NOT be used. They were sold at Walmart, Target and BabiesRUs. The word on the street is that Walmart is the easiest to deal with when it comes to returning them. Those who wish to return Simplicity cribs don't need a receipt, they can just take them to Walmart for store credit. BabiesRUs was apparently giving about $65 while Walmart was closer to $190. Again, this is just what I have heard from others.

You can find the specific information on the Simplicity recall here:

Six Retailers Agree To Stop Sale and Recall Simplicity Bassinets Due To Strangulation Hazard

I would pack it up, take it in for store credit, and get a new crib!

You can get some great deals these days on bassinets, there's a great one on Amazon for $130 so it's kind of a no-brainer. Here's one of the top rated:

As I have heard, Walmart will take it back, no questions asked and no receipt necessary and you can get a brand new one with brand new parts, brand new instructions and no recalls or risks!

Good Luck.

I have a simplicity winnie the pooh, 3 in 1 bassinet.. i would like to know if this product has been recalled because i saw at walmart that similar ones have been.


READ IMMEDIATELY!!!

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!)
