Plastic toy figure in the shape of Santa Claus, to which is attached a cord to hang it around the neck. The toy contains 3 button batteries and flashes when the switch on the back of the toy is turned on. The product is packed in a transparent plastic bag with cardboard back and sold with sweets.

The figure can be easily torn apart and the battery compartment removed, giving access to small parts including button batteries. A small child may put the small parts and/or the button batteries in the mouth, causing choking or damage to the gastrointestinal tract.
