Kickboard USA, the manufacturers of the Mini Micro scooter toy, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall on August 21 for the scooter after reports of a laceration hazard and possible injuries to children.
The three-wheeled toy scooter, which is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 5, is sold in blue, orange, pink and aqua colors and has “Micro” written in black and blue letters across the front metal handlebars. According to the CPSC, the plastic platform piece covering the front wheel can break, resulting in sharp pieces of plastic and a laceration hazard for children.
According to the CPSC, the toys were sold at independent toy stores, Amazon.com and Kickboardusa.com for approximately $85 between May 2012 and July 2012. As of the August 21 recall, there have been no reported child injuries associated with the product. They were manufactured in Germany and Kickboard USA will replace the product for free.
