Toys'R'Us toy cars and scooters suspected to be problematic

Some kids' ride-on cars at a Toys'R'Us store have been found to have safety issues.

Some kids' ride-on cars, motorcycles and scooters on sale at a Toys'R'Us store were found to have safety issues during an inspection by quality inspectors yesterday morning.

The dangerous toys, including brands LaFerrari, McLaren and BMW were selling for up to 1,999 yuan (US$290) in the Toys'R'Us store in Super Brand Mall, Lujiazui.

The common problem was the size of gaps between moving parts. According to China's national standards, gaps between moving parts in toys and toy cars should be smaller than five millimeters or larger than 12 millimeters so kids will not get their fingers stuck in them.
