What are the defects?

With use, the stitching on the edge of the “blanket” section of the toy may become frayed and expose the polyster filling. In addition, the loops on the corners of the blanket may become loose and form small parts, thereby breaching the mandatory standard for toys for children up to and including 36 months of age, AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2002 (as amended by the regulation).

What are the hazards?

If the stitching becomes loose and/or the loops on the corners of the blanket form small parts, these defects may pose a choking hazard if ingested by children.

What should consumers do?

Customers should immediately cease using the product and return it to any BIG W store for a full refund.
