A PRIMROSE Hill boutique has had to rein in children's toys due to the danger they pose.

Graham & Green on Regent's Park Road has had to warn parents to stop children from using the hobby horses they sell as the reins are too long and could strangle a child.

The shop has put up posters in its windows asking customers who brought the horses to bring them back.

The shop's warning poster reads: "Despite rigorous quality control procedures, it has been bought to Graham & Green's attention that the reins on the children's toy 'Hobby Horse' are too long and in a worse-case scenario could become wrapped round the neck of a child during play."

The shop told customers to return horses for a full refund, even without a receipt.

Any customers wanting to keep the toys are advised to cut the reins immediately.

The shop added: "No other Graham & Green products have been affected by this recall.
