Argos Recall: Chad Valley Pipsie the Interactive Horse

Argos Recall: Pipsie the Interactive Horse

Argos have today issued a recall notice for the child's toy Chad Valley Pipsie the Interactive Horse due to safety concerns.

The fault is not with the toy horse itself but with the little apples that the horse comes with, as they could come apart and the magnet inside presents a choking hazard and could lead to internal injuries is swallowed.

Instead of returning it to the store Argos are asking customers to dispose of the apples that come with the toy, and are offering replacement 'cupcakes' for the horse to eat instead.

You can request your replacement parts here*, and the recall notice appears on theArgos website here*.

Here's the notice in full:

Important safety notice – Product safety warning

(Notice added 6th July 2016)

A fault has been identified where the apples could break apart and release the internal magnet. This is a choking hazard and if ingested could lead to internal injuries.
