(WBNG Binghamton) About 16,000 Lights and Sounds Children's Scooters are recalled by Kiddieland Toys Limited.
A child’s finger can get caught in the hinge mechanism between the steering column and the platform, posing a laceration hazard.
Two reports of children whose fingers got caught in the hinge mechanism and required stitches were received.
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.
The products were 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.
