Injuries

1. The horse poses:

- a risk of choking, because the rattle attached to the stick (which is included in the horse set) can easily break and the sleeves of the saddle can easily come off. These loose parts fit in the small parts cylinder,

- a chemical risk, because the plastic material in the handles contains 34% by weight of bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), in the saddle: 2.8% by weight of DEHP and 34% by weight of di-"isononyl" phthalate (DINP) and in the bridle: 4.8% by weight of DEHP and 33% by weight of DINP.

2. The truck poses a risk of injuries because, when tipping the platform of the truck, the space between the platform and the hull is less than 12 mm but more than 5 mm. Therefore, a child’s fingers could get caught in the hinge line.

The products do not comply with the Toys Directive and with the relevant European standard EN 71.

According to the REACH Regulation, phthalates DEHP, DBP and BBP are prohibited in all toys and childcare articles, while phthalates DINP, DIDP and DNOP are prohibited when the toy or childcare article can be placed in the mouth by children.

Compulsory measures: Import rejected by the customs authorities.
