Kiddieland Scooter Recalled
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Kiddieland Toys Limited, of Scituate, Mass., today announced a voluntary recall of about 16,000 Lights and Sounds Children’s Scooters in the United States and 700 in Canada.
This recall involves three models of Kiddieland “Lights and Sounds” three-wheeled scooters including a red Spiderman, a blue Thomas & Friends™ and a pink girl’s scooter. The scooters have buttons on the handle that play music and sounds. “Kiddieland” is molded on the back of the steering mechanism. Spiderman or Thomas & Friends™ are found on the steering mechanism and platform. The girl’s model has butterflies on the platform.
A child’s finger can get caught in the hinge mechanism between the steering column and the platform, posing a laceration hazard.
CPSC and Kiddieland have received two reports of children whose fingers got caught in the hinge mechanism and required stitches.
As Seattle product liability attorneys, we urge parents to immediately take the recalled scooters away from children and contact Kiddieland for a free repair kit. If you have any questions related to this recall or any personal injury or incident involving a children’s product, please contact the Dixon Law Firm for a free case consultation.
