Popular children’s inflatable toy recalled over choking fears

Children’s Hoppy Frogs, usually sold and promoted at agricultural shows, have been recalled over serious choking fears.

The plastic inflatable frogs, which are approximately 30cm wide have been pulled from sale as they do not comply with consumer product safety standards.

“The inflation plug can be removed from the frog by a child and is a choking hazard,” A recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website reads.


The frogs, supplied by Mesco and RPC promo, were sold nationwide between 1 July – 29 September 2016.

Parents have been urged to stop young children from playing with the frog.

“The frog may be disposed of in the household rubbish or returned to a supplier for a refund or replacement product.”
