Risk
The product poses a risk of strangulation because it has a strap with which to hang the guitar around one's neck and there is a risk that small children will wind the strap several times around their neck when playing. The product does not comply with the Toys Directive and with the relevant European standard EN 71. In addition, the product can also pose a risk of damage to hearing because the sound emission is too high.
