Mothercare and Early Learning Centre: Recall 2.5 Million Child Buggies

By Jamie Pert - May 14, 2010

Mothercare and Early Learning Centre have announced a recall of two child buggy models, both models were manufactured by the American toy company Step2, the recalls are due to safety concerns regarding the buggy’s handles.

One of the models affected is the red and pink versions of the Step2 Push Around buggy, from what we can see this particular buggy was sold at Early Learning Centre. The other model is the WhisperRide blue buggy, this buggy was available from Mothercare.

Both of these buggies have long handle’s which adults use to steer, push and hold the buggy, however there are reports suggesting that the yellow pin holding the handle in can come loose, which then leads to loss of control (obviously).

Newer models apparently feature a screw in bolt, therefore should not be affected, it is unclear as to how many injuries this fault has caused, however there are said to be a lot of parents seeking compensation. For further details check out the link below.

Have you been affected by this particular fault? If so, are you happy with the support you have received from Mothercare / Early Learning Centre?
