Product name Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Push-A-Long Train and Pull Toy
Description Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Push-A-Long Train and Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Shape Sorter Pull Toy. The Push-A-Long Train consists of one Thomas the Tank Engine with two passenger cars, Annie and Clarabel. The Thomas the Tank Engine is a hard plastic blue toy which is approximately 5 1/4 inches tall, 9 inches wide, and 9 inches long; the body of the engine includes pictures of two engineers in the cab and has various colored components. The engine cab is a “shape sorter” with six different colored shapes (red, green, yellow, blue, white, orange). The removable black lid and the rear roof each has three holes carved in them to correspond with the shapes. A blue door with a red latch at the back of the engine provides easy access to the shapes. The Annie and Clarabel brown passenger cars stand approximately 6 inches tall, 4 inches wide, and 10 inches long; and, each car is identified by a name, either Annie or Clarabel. The Shape Sorter Pull Toy consists only of an engine which is identical in description to the Thomas the Tank Engine included with the Push-A-Long Train, with the exception that a 5 inch red cord with a blue pull ring is attached to the front of the engine. 
Problem The gray pegs on the side rods and the red latch on the back of the engine doors separated from both the “Push-A-Long Train” and the “Shape Sorter Pull Toy” while the black hitches connecting two cars separated only from the “Push-A-Long Train.” All of these pieces are small parts that could present potential choking or aspiration hazards for young children.
