The Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinet features a folding frame, lockable rolling casters, soothing vibrations, music with volume control, a thick mattress with a washable fitted sheet and a large storage basket. The bassinet also has mesh side windows to encourage airflow and an adjustable canopy with two soft toys. It is designed for infants up to 15 pounds or until the infant can push up on his hands and knees.
On May 9, 2012, the Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinet was recalled after seven reports of latches disconnecting from the metal frame, with one infant injury as a result. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states that the recalled bassinets were manufactured from July 2008 through May 2010 and include model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER and KB039-CMR1.
In the recalled bassinets, the latches that attach the bassinet base to the metal frame appear to be locked, but they are actually unlocked. This allows the bassinet to detach from the metal frame and potentially fall and injure the infant. At the time of the recall, consumers were advised to immediately stop using the Tender Vibes bassinet and contact Kolcraft for a repair kit and instructions. The Tender Vibes bassinet is no longer available for purchase.
