The Cozy Coupe Computer Mouse was distributed by KB Gear under license from Little Tikes Co., of Hudson, Ohio. KB Gear liquidated and as of Nov. 1, 2001, is no longer in business. As a result, the company is unable to provide consumers with a remedy.

Consumers should take the computer mouse away from children immediately and contact Little Tikes at www.littletikes.com or at (800) 321-0183 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to obtain an equivalent $10 Little Tikes toy.
