HUNDREDS of potentially toxic fake Frozen dolls are feared to have been sold to children.
The toys, featuring characters from the hit Disney films, contain deadly chemicals.
They were being sold at one of the biggest open-air markets in Britain before the coronavirus lockdown.
Tests showed the dolls — counterfeit merchandise cashing in on last year’s Frozen II — were made with phthalates, a banned chemical plastic softener linked to asthma, allergies and reproductive problems.
A set of four dolls mislabelled as Aagel Girls was also found to have the chemicals, which are used in vinyl flooring, toiletries and milk bottles.
And one doll had an electronic voice box with a battery secured with tape, which could easily be removed and swallowed.
Trading Standards officers seized the fakes from Wellesbourne Market in Warwickshire.

Neither toy had the name and address of a manufacturer or importer on the packaging, as is legally required, making it difficult to discover who made them.
Parents were advised to immediately stop their children playing with the dolls and report them to Trading Standards.
County councillor Andy Crump, with responsibility for community safety, said: “I’m delighted our Trading Standards officers are taking this action to protect consumers.”
