VIP Price branded Happy Monkey Electric Walking Unicorn Children’s Toys with an accompanying “leash” sold with an unknown item number and barcode/EAN/UPC.

No batch/lot designations, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other codes were listed with this recall.

The type of hazards presented in the recalled VIP Price branded Happy Monkey Electric Walking Unicorn Children’s Toys include the reported findings that the walk-along cord (“leash”) is too long and does not have a break-away feature.

Specifically, a child playing with this Toy could get entangled in the cord, an element that due to its design does not have a safety break-away feature. If the “leash” wraps around the child’s neck, it could lead to strangulation, brain injury or death. In addition, if the cord becomes entangled with the child’s legs as it is pulled along the floor, it could pose tripping and/or fall hazards leading to possible laceration, bone fracture and concussion injuries.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these VIP Price branded Happy Monkey Electric Walking Unicorn Children’s Toys do not comply with the requirements of the Europe’s Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard EN 71-1.

Consequently, a recall of these Toys from children and a withdrawal of the product from the European marketplace has been ordered.
