Product name Six small wind-up toys and klacker balls
Description The Stretch Tail Pup brown- and white plastic dog’s tail is attached to the wheels. The dog’s tail is attached to a pull-action string which activates the wheels. The Whistling Funny Action Toys are multi-colored plastic wind-up airplanes, helicopters, and train engines measuring three inches long. The Busy Animals are wind-up frogs and turtles standing five inches tall and made of green, orange and yellow plastic. Imported from Taiwan, the Klacker Balls consist of two one-and-one third -inch, colored, solid plastic balls attached to both ends of a braided cotton-nylon cord. 
Problem The Stretch Tail Pup’s ears may separate from the toy and could present a choking hazard to young children. The Whistling Funny Action Toys’ propellers and wind-up key may dislodge and present choking hazards to young children. The Busy Animals’ arms and wind-up key may dislodge from the frog; the turtle’s feet may also break off and present choking hazards to young children. The Klacker balls are banned because the balls may separate from the string and could cause injury to the users or bystanders.
