It's the scooter nearly every kid in my neighborhood learns to ride on: The Kickboard USA "Mini Micro." And over 5,600 of these scooters are being recalled! Apparently they have a laceration hazard. The plastic wheel cover could break and possibly cut the child riding it. Yipes.
Does your kid have one of these? Whether you bought yours online or from a local shop this summer, you'll need to check those serial numbers.
The affected scooters were sold between May and July of this year. Look at the bottom of the scooter to find a sticker. The following model numbers/serial numbers are in the recall.
Kickboard USA is giving out free replacements for all recalled scooters -- which is great, because these scooters are wonderful for kids learning to ride. What I like about them is that they have two wheels in the front, which makes balancing so much easier for toddlers and small children. They're also usually really well made -- which is why I'm surprised by the recall. But these things happen. Safe riding, everyone!
Does your child have a scooter like this one?
