Today: Trampoline sprinkler – Trampoline Waterpark
Traditionally, the end of the year is a time of conviviality and togetherness. Giving presents is an undeniable part of this. But what should you pay attention to when it comes to the safety of these presents? There are still products available that are (partly) unsafe. Fortunately, this is just a fragment of the total offer.
We are here to keep you up to date on the latest developments in product safety. On the one hand, we pay attention to products that are being withdrawn from the market because of included hazardous parts. On the other hand, we provide information on details you should look out for when purchasing products that are still available.
Every day the latest news, alerts and mentionable facts.
Keep yourself informed with our Holiday-Presents Daily to make sure that the present you give is a present that's safe. Once every weekday we will provide a newsletter including the latest news on product safety and recalls, important alerts and mentionable facts that relate to the safety of products. Millions of products have been recalled this year. Here's a video from the US Consumer Reports on how to protect yourself and your family. Hopefully our newsletter will add to your and your children's safety.
Trampoline sprinkler – Trampoline Waterpark
The product is a water hose that can be mounted on a trampoline which makes the mat wet. Even though in large parts of the world a Trampoline Water Sprinkler is not typically a December gift, we still think your attention is necessary. For there is a specific danger that you need to know. Denmark recalled this product because of the lack of instructions for use and a warning label. That should have been applied to warn against using the trampoline in wet conditions, because when the trampolin becomes wet it can cause injuries.
The product does not comply with the requirements of the Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard 71-1, 2 and 3. Therefor the product is withdrawn from the market.
This is just an example of product safety information about toys and their hazards that you need to be aware of. With our Holiday-Presents Daily we will continue to follow the news on Product Safety and we will continue to keep you informed.
