Problem: The abacus ring on the horse’s back may dislodge from the body of the toy. This will release the small bead rings and these small beads, if released, pose a hazardous choking risk to a child.

What is the safety hazard: If young children gain access to the small they can possibly swallow them or shove them up a nostril, making them potentially a choking or obstruction danger.

What to do: Consumers should immediately stop using the toys and contact Playgro to organise a replacement. Sorry kids!
