A couple in Hong Kong was forced to pay HKD33,600 (about RM18,800) after a toy store claimed that their son kicked an expensive item on display, causing it to smash into pieces
According to Hong Kong Free Press, the father, Cheng, recounted the incident on Commercial Radio on the morning of 24 May.
Cheng and his family had visited KK Plus, a designer toy store in Mong Kok, Hong Kong, two days prior.
He recalled that he was taking a phone call outside of the store when he suddenly heard a loud smash. He walked back in to find his son standing over a giant golden Teletubby figure that had fallen and broken into pieces.
Amidst the online backlash, KK Plus gave the family a full refund and apologised for causing the inconvenience
KK Plus is operated by Kidsland International Holdings Limited, a listed toy retailer and distributor in China.
The store's manager admitted in an interview with HK01 that the store had not taken enough precautionary steps. He added that the store has also removed all toys that are over one metre tall and would conduct a review for the future.
