Timber dog with cord falls apart in children’s hands

(Prague, January 4, 2016) Monitoring of the market with toys is carried out during the year. Officers of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority search for potentially dangerous toys that shall not be used for children’s games due to their construction, used materials or physical characteristics. This applies for toys that aren’t properly marked and equipped with required information and data. A timber pull-along dog is one of such toys that pose serious risk of health damage especially to smallest users. During laboratory tests the toy failed safety standards in several parameters. Therefore ban on distribution was imposed and the CTIA ordered withdrawal of the toy from distribution. The product was notified into the system RAPEX, file No. INFO/0220/15.
