Children’s Riding Toys Recalled


The Step2 Company has recalled about 15,500 children’s riding toys due to a fall hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Why the product is being recalled: Children who lean too far forward on the seat can go over the handle bar and hit the ground.

Description: The recalled product is an X-Rider Car. It is a red, plastic toy scooter with a yellow handlebar and seat, and two blue stickers that simulate headlights. It is 14 inches high, 14 inches wide and 19 inches long. The middle of the handle bar contains the Step2 logo. Step2’s contact information is located on the rider’s left side of the car. Children use their feet to propel the toy.

Where it was sold: The riding toys were sold at Target and other retailers from January 2012 through August 2012 for about $25.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact Step2 to receive a free replacement toy.
