    Argos - Spike Children's Bike - safety notice

    Editor
    With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I'd post this in the off chance someone has bought one of these for the kids.

    The following notice has been issued by the retailer:

    Spike Children's Bike
    12" Catalogue number 304/3686
    14" Catalogue number 292/7246
    16" Catalogue number 297/7636

    It has been brought to our attention that in small numbers of reported instances the white nozzle of the drinking bottle lid has detached from the main lid, which is a potential choking hazard. Please note there is no issue with the bike itself.

    What you need to do
    If you have purchased one of the affected bikes please immediately remove the lid from the bottle and dispose of the lid with normal household waste.

    We are offering a replacement lid which will fit your bottle in the same way.

    I can't believe in 2016 manufacturers still can't produce a safe drinking cup for children. How do these ever pass checks?

    It is a safe drinking cup. It will have passed checks. However, someone somewhere has a little kid that may or may not have pulled the lid off with their teeth and as such the Daily Mail are then duly informed and sad pout photos taken and then retailer has to make amends. In reality, most toys can be pulled apart if you try hard enough and a domino is a choking hazard if an adult swallows it but that design hasn't changed. Adults should supervise their kids better and these things wouldn't happen.
