Risk level

Risk type
Choking and suffocation

Risk description
This product poses a high risk of choking from AAA batteries accessible without the aid of a tool. The AAA batteries fit wholly within a small parts cylinder indicating that it poses a choking hazard to young children. In addition, the zip puller detached during a 90-newton tension test and was found to fit wholly within a small parts cylinder. It also generated a sharp point capable of posing a skin puncture hazard. 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 a suffocation hazard as it 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 0.023 mm which is below the 0.038 mm standard. It does not bear any warnings that this has been calculated to pose a risk. In addition, the electrical wires were approximately 230 mm in length and as such considered to pose a high risk of a strangulation hazard. The product failed flammability testing and therefore also poses a fire risk.

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