Cheap as Chips—Puffer Urchin Ball
What are the defects?
These types of products are banned under Consumer Protection Notice 20 of 2011 because the cord (and "hair") provides a yo-yo effect and can stretch to over the safe limit of 500mm in length.
What are the hazards?
The cord (and "hair") could wind around a child’s neck, especially if swung around the head. The highly elastic and ‘sticky’ nature of the cord (and "hair") can constrict breathing if wound tightly around a child’s neck and cause choking.
What should consumers do?
Return product to any Cheap as Chips store for a full refund.
