Pelican wind-up toy is dangerous

(Prague, August 3, 2012) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority warns against another dangerous toy which was found by the CTIA inspectors in Western Bohemia. The pelican wind-up toy is attractive for children due to its colours and movable parts, but it is not suitable for playing as it is dangerous for small children. The toy can be very easily disassembled into small parts that may potentially injure the baby or cause suffocation – e.g. the sharp metal turning pivot decorated with a flower or tiny balls placed in the beak. The CTIA banned selling of this toy and the distributor subsequently withdrew the product from the market. However, it cannot be excluded that some shops still offer these products.
