Product description
Green Plastic Squeaky Nessie Toy - shape like a dragon
Risk
This toy poses a serious risk of choking because: - the tail can be detached on the application of a 90 N tensile force and fitted entirely in the small parts cylinder, presenting a choking hazard for children under three years if swallowed; - the sound mechanism could easily be removed and would constitute a choking hazard to children under 36 months. This toy also poses a chemical risk because it contains di-isononyl phthalate (DINP) which is banned for use in toys which can be placed in the mouth. The design of this article is such that the toy could be easily mouthed. The toy does not comply with the Toys Directive, the Chemicals Restrictions Directive 76/769/EEC and the relevant European standard EN 71-1.
