The Poppy Playtime soap opera continues. After the multiple reports received by the Postal Police, 500 soft toys that do not comply with the anxiety-inducing Huggy Wuggy monster have been seized in recent days, destined for retail sale in wholesale stores in the metropolitan area of Milan.
As described by the editorial staff of Sky TG24, the intervening authorities found the anomalies in the traceability of the labeling of the soft toys and seized the goods that simply reported the wording “Made in China” without any warning of use and indications on the manufacturer or on the name of the company responsible for the import.
In addition to the seizure of Huggy Wuggy’s 500 soft toys, the Milan Police have imposed one fine of 5,000 euros to the owner of a business that was reselling the puppets asking customers 1 or 2 euros depending on the size.
The seizure of the 500 soft toys and the fine to the aforementioned wholesaler, in all likelihood, will be followed by further interventions and sanctions by the Milan Police (but not only) to stem the spread of these non-compliant puppets. Psychologists and the Postal Police itself have also raised the alarm on the soft toys related to the Poppy Playtime video game: experts advise against viewing Huggy Wuggy for children.
