Product name Trolley-Ride Toys
Description This toy is also known as "Fun Ride Trolley Ride" toys and features four components: the trolley, which consists of two pulley-like grooved wheels encased within a plastic housing which supports two plastic handles; a 35-foot cable of either a single wire or seven intertwined strands of wire; and two clamps which serve to fasten the suspended cable around two tree trunks or posts. These toys are packaged in boxes labeled with the model number 30/1000. 
Problem Once the cable is suspended, a child can propel himself along the cable by gripping the trolley's two handles. The cable can break under the weight of children resulting in concussions, back injuries, and/or minor cuts and bruises.
