Do you have the Soulet Fargo Wooden Playcentre in your garden, or know someone that does? Smyths Toys have just issued a Product Notice on it, that doesn't go as far as a full recall, but gives a warning about a possible fault.
There appears to be an issue with the step ladder that leads up to the play deck and slide where they have had complaints about the steps breaking.
They are advising all customers to inspect their steps before use and if you find any damage you can obtain replacement steps.
The Soulet Fargo Wooden Playcentre* is still listed on the Smyths website so if you need to identify it you can see it here*. It is no longer for sale either online or in shops, though it was still being sold very recently.
You can read the Product Notice on the Smyths Toys website here*, and it follows in full below:
