People mistakenly believe that if something costs more, it is better and safer. WRONG! Maclaren has proven to us that is a fallacy and has recalled one million strollers sold at Babies R Us and Target since 1999. The problem? Their strollers have a tendency to amputate the fingers of babies and toddlers. It is nice to know that they waited 10 YEARS to announce a recall. The recall affects the following models: Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno, and Easy Traveller.
The stroller pictured above is a Maclaren Quest Mod that sells for $245 at Target. Maclaren has put out the statement that consumers can contact Maclaren at 877-688-2326 or visit www.maclaren.us/recall to receive a free repair kit. If I spent $245 on a stroller, I would expect the manufacturer to refund my money or replace my stroller NOT to give me a toll free number to ask for a repair kit so my kids fingers don’t get cut off. What is wrong with them???
