Spring is in the air and the kids are out of school for a well deserved break. Before you know it, summer will be in full swing with kids playing sports and other games with their friends.
Pogo sticks are one of those classic toys many kids still enjoy today.
But after numerous reports came in indicating Bravo Sports’ pogo sticks would break during use and present an injury hazard, the manufacturer and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall of over 169,000 pogo sticks sold between May 2010 and March 2011.
The recall was announced on March 16th after numerous reports to both the manufacturer and the CPSC…of the 123 reported incidents, 9 resulted in some sort of injury.
Specifically, the bottom of the pogo sticks in question and the pins that hold the spring in would break.
The recall affects the following Bravo pogo stick models available either online or at many large retailers.
• Rocket Stick Pogo
• Pop Stick Pogo
• Monster Stick Pogo
• Twin Stick Pogo
Each of these sticks is red, blue or green with the model name printed on the stem and foot pedals. The manufacture date codes found on a white label underneath the foot pedal or on a stem near the foot pedals range between 4/1/2010 and 10/31/2010.
Bravo and the CPSC recommend you (…and your child) stop using these pogo stick immediately. Contact the company for a full refund of the purchase price.
