What are the defects?

These types of products are banned under Consumer Protection Notice 20 of 2011 because the cord provides a yo-yo effect and can stretch to over the safe limit of 500 mm in length.

What are the hazards?

The cord could wind around a child’s neck, especially if swung around the head. The highly elastic and ‘sticky’ nature of the cord can constrict breathing if wound tightly around a child’s neck and cause choking.

What should consumers do?

Contact the company on direct number 0434 191 958 to receive a refund.
