Argos reached out to their customers to warn them that a part of the Little Tikes Activity Garden play centre posed a risk to children.

In the email warning to customers Argos said: 'We are contacting you because our records show that you may have purchased the Little Tikes Garden Playcentre from Argos and wanted to make you aware of a safety concern.

'When the telephone is attached to the green stand there is a potential for a child's finger to become trapped between the telephone and the stand.

'Please remove the stand out of the reach of children and dispose of it immediately. With the green stand removed the remaining components of the play centre are safe to be played with.'

They say they will be contacting customers who purchased the toy online again by February 22 with more information about how to get the free replacement stand.
