Risk
This toy poses a serious risk of: - injuries because different parts of the product contain metallic wire with sharp endings which can scratch the skin, make lacerated wounds and in worst cases cause eye damage; - choking because children may easily detach small details (bell and plastic fastening) which can fit completely into the small parts cylinder and they can put them into their mouth. This product does not comply with the Toys Directive and the relevant European standard EN 71-1.
