Mother Calls for Argos to Take Disney Princess Tea Set off of the Shelves After Her Daughter Cut her Face

A mother has called for Argos to take a Disney Princess Tea Set off of their shelves after her 14 month old baby girl suffered a cut on her face from the rough plastic edges of a teacup .
Natalie Giugo who called the toy ‘dangerous’ posted a warning on Facebook after Elia-belle Hooker suffered a cut to her face from a tea cup.
30-year-old Natalie took the toy back to the Cromer branch of Argos and asked managers to stop selling the product.
An Argos representative said that Miss Giugno was the first person to lodge a complaint about the toy which has a ‘not suitable for children under the age of three warning’ on it and because of that couldn’t stop selling it.
Since lodging the complaint about Elia-belle’s cut from the tea cup Argos have begun an investigation with the toy’s suppliers.
In a bid to stop other children being hurt Miss Giugno posted a picture of Elia’s cut and the Disney Princess Tea Set on Facebook.
The post has now been shared by over 80000 people around the world and people have sent Natalie thank you messages for the warning.
Miss Giugno told MailOnline that the edges of the cup were ‘really sharp like unfinished plastic almost grainy.’
Miss Giugno said that Argos’s initial customer service was pleasing and said that they were eager to check her Disney Princess Tea Set against others to see if they were all similar.
Despite this she told the MailOnline that she was unhappy as a managing director told her they would look into removing it from sale he then retracted this and said that he wouldn’t because hers was the only complaint.
Argos offered her a £15 voucher which they later increased to £50.
