Product title
Wooden toy - wooden train (50 cm) with slot-in animals
Product description
The wooden train consists of 1 locomotive and 2 carriages. The colour is a combination of natural wood and different-coloured varnishes (red, green, blue, yellow). Locomotive: the roof of the driver's compartment and the driver (play figure) are removable. The open carriage contains 4 removable cubes. Closed carriage: removable roof, slot-in animals (wooden pieces with pictures of animals printed on them) can be slotted through the openings in the side walls of the carriage. Attached to the floor of both carriages is a short piece of red cord from which a skittle-shaped piece of wood hangs. This can be placed in the corresponding opening of the other carriage or locomotive (carriages' couplings). A long red cord with a red wooden ball at the end is attached to the locomotive (for pulling the train).
Risk
The product poses a risk of: - choking because the play figure (train driver) fits completely into the small parts test cylinder; - suffocation by strangulation as the free length of cords on toys (including handles) which could form loops must not exceed 220 mm. In this case, the cord attached to the locomotive has a handle (red ball). The end of the cord (with the ball) can easily get caught on a wheel, thereby forming a loop. The length of the cord – 520 mm – far exceeds the maximum admissible length of 220 mm. The circumference of the loop which is formed if the ball catches behind one of the front wheels is over 400 mm. However, the length of loops in the cord must not exceed 380 mm otherwise, there is a risk that children could pull the loop over their heads and strangle themselves. The product does not comply with the Toys Directive and with the relevant European standard EN 71.
