A Minnesota toymaker has announced the most precious recall you've ever seen.

The Manhattan Group is recalling My Snuggly Ellie Activity Toys, due to a choking hazard. The wooden rings hanging from the toy elephant can break into small pieces, which is unsafe for small children.

The toy is a plush brown elephant that has a green loop on the top of its head allowing it to be dangled from a stroller or crib attachment, while wooden rings hang below its body. The item number is 212520 and can be found on the small white tag sewn into the bottom of the toy. About 2,700 are being recalled.

My Snuggly Ellie was sold at specialty toy and baby stores nationwide, as well as at the Manhattan Toy website, from February 2014 to May 2015 retailing for about $10.

The company has received one report of the wooden ring breaking, but no injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately take the toy away from young children and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Customers with questions can contact the Manhattan Group at (800) 541-1345.
