Stop using this product and return it to the store for a refund

This wooden car has been recalled because the end caps on the beige axles of the wheels can come off. This manufacturing defect presents a safety risk for children who use it. Indeed, the detachable parts are likely to be ingested by users, potentially causing a risk of suffocation. If the airways are completely blocked, there is a risk of respiratory arrest, which can cause severe brain damage.

Therefore, it is recommended not to use the product and to return it to the point of sale. In order to compensate for this error, the brand also certifies that a refund is planned, until Sunday March 31, 2024.
