Serious

Risk type
Choking

Risk description
This product poses a choking hazard as the cushion utilises three AAA batteries, which fit into a small parts cylinder. The batteries were accessible without the aid of a tool to open the battery box and through a Velcro fastening. In addition, a portion of the battery box detached during a 90-newton tension test and was found to fit wholly within a small parts cylinder indicating that it poses a choking hazard to young children. The inner seams did not withstand a 70-newton seam strength test and gave access to the filling material. The supplied polymer bag also poses an asphyxiation hazard as was sufficiently large to be able to cover a child's mouth and nose simultaneously. When measured it was found to have an average thickness 0.027 mm, as this is below the 0.038 mm standard. It does not bear any warnings that this has been calculated to pose a risk. The product failed flammability testing therefore also poses a fire risk.

The product does not meet the requirements of the General Product Safety Regulations 2005, the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 and the Toys (Safety) Regulations 2011.
