Step2 Children's Riding Toy Recalled
Playthings Staff -- Gifts and Dec, November 27, 2012
Step2 has received four reports of incidents, including one incident resulting in head bumps and another resulting in a minor concussion and cuts to the gum and lip from the child's front teeth. Children who lean too far forward on the seat can go over the handle bar and hit the ground. This poses a fall hazard.
The recalled product, manufactured in the U.S., 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. Children use their feet to propel the toy. 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.
Nearly 15,500 of these 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 at (866) 860-1887 or online.
