Small parts of cuddly snowman can cause suffocation

(Prague, November 11, 2015) Cuddly toys belong among the most favourite toys no matter how they look like. Anyhow, they need to be safe when children should play with them. A cuddly snowman failed this elementary requirement because it posed serious risk of blocking air ways in the consequence of inhalation of released small parts. The Czech Trade Inspection Authority prohibited sale of the dangerous toy and distributor subsequently withdrew the product from the market. After all necessary documents were elaborated, the product was notified into the system RAPEX.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
