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.
