The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 16,000 Lights and Sounds Children’s Scooters manufactured by Kiddieland Toys Limited, of Scituate, Mass.
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.
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.
Products sold at Toys R Us and JCPenney from January 2009 through February 2011 for about $40
Consumers should immediately take the recalled scooters away from children and contact Kiddieland for a free repair kit. For more info, contact Kiddieland toll-free at (800) 430-5307 or visit the firm’s website at www.kiddieland.com.hk
