The holder clips are designed to attach the pacifier to various items such as clothing, diaper bags, and strollers. If the clips crack or break near the children it may create a potential choking hazard.

The products have a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifiers were manufactured in blue with a tow truck, green with a monkey figure, and pink with a flower design.
