Two thousand 26in Universal Sabre's have been sold by Toys R Us. They need to be returned, said newspaper adverts placed by Toys R Us. 3000 in-store Sabres have been removed from sale. But the recall has not yet made it on to RAPEX, the European commission's recall web service, mandatory since earlier in the year.

TRU recall full-suss MTBs

The Chinese-built bikes have frames liable to break, said TRU.

Purchasers can get a full refund of £69.99, or an alternative bike.
