Yes, our 13A plugs are fused (ceramic cartridge type, 1 x 0.25", ratings from 1A to 13A). The older style round-pin plugs usually aren't fused, although there aren't too many of those still around in common domestic use.
I hadn't though about "the plug contains a fuse so the plug could be classed as a protective device" argument, but I see your point.
There are some other nits to pick as well, e.g. brown is the live wire in a plug. They should add "unless it's on an appliance made before 1970 in which case it's red."
And I do feel that for kids as young as this is aimed at, they're over-emphasizing the power used by a TV on standby.

Anyway, if you go to the hairdryer in the bathroom:
Ellie Elephant says: "As Hannah hair-dryer is mains powered, it is dangerous to use her in the bathroom or anywhere near water."
It goes along with the IEE's total refusal to accept any receptacle in a bathroom, other than a low-power xfmr-isolated shaver outlet.
Where'd that elephant come from anyway?
