Knoxville (WVLT) -- There are several new recalls to pass along and all of them deal with children's products.

The first deals with crib maker Kolcraft.

Kolcraft announced today that they are recalling around 425,000 of their "Travel Play Yards" after the death of a child.

Officials say a 10 month old boy was strangled on the changing table's strap.

Also one the 12 recalled styles has a raised cradle that rocks.

If the child gets trapped to one side they could suffocate.

350,000 Happy Giddy gardening tools and Children's Sunny Patch chairs are also being recalled.

The products were sold at Target from August 2006 through August 2007.

Another recall involves about 16,000 children's toy rakes.

They were sold by Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores nationwide from January 2007 through September 2007.
