These very bright and attractive looking toys cost £10 and may have been purchased for local children. However, they are subject to a Europe-wide recall notice because of the chemicals they contain. Obviously we want to keep our young children safe and I would ask anyone who has bought one of these toys to take it away from their child and notify the Trading Standards service. Additionally, I would urge any shopkeepers who still have the products in stock to return them to their suppliers, citing the Europe-wide recall notice.”
