Product title
Hot water bottle in the shape of a hippopotamus
Product description
Hot water bottle, perfumed with lavender, in the shape of a hippopotamus, packed in a transparent plastic box of approx. 15 cm.
Risk
The product poses a risk of burns because the temperature reached by the outer casing of the hippopotamus presents a potential risk of burns to children (measured temperature up to 95 C). In addition, in the absence of a seam on one of the soft toy's front legs, the stuffing can be accessed and thus could be ingested or inhaled. The product does not comply with the Toy Safety Directive and with the relevant standards EN 71-1 and BS 8433.
