A trailer containing an unsafe batch of Little Tikes Squeezoo Bubble Bus and Elephant toys was stolen from Wellesbourne Distribution Park. This batch of toys was on its way to be destroyed due to quality control issues and potential safety risks associated with them.
While the brand is still stocked by reputable retailers, Detective Constable Daniel Griffiths said: “We’re urging people to show caution when buying these toys from a market, car boot sale, online auction site or social media.”
“We have launched an investigation to identify the offenders and retrieve the stolen toys. I’d appeal for anyone with information that could help with our investigation to contact us.” (Read full Warwickshire Police warning here.)
Anyone with information about the theft or who thinks they have seen the stolen toys for sale should call police on 101 quoting incident 50 of 22 November 2018.
Alternatively, information be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
