  • While this looks like a great product for bubs, if it isn’t safe, then I am glad it has been recalled! Luckily I don’t know anyone who has bought this

  • Good to know. I wonder how these things get produced and pass.

  • If these items were stringently checked in the first place, there’d be no place for recalls. Hopefully it was removed before any child was affected

  • Oh man, a friend bought this so I’ve sent them this link! I did see it and almost bought it for my bub but she doesn’t like to sit still so we gave up on that idea.

  • To be honest there are small items in every household, babies and toddlers need to be supervised 24/7

  • I’ve seen a mum’s warning a few months back about this chair. It blew my mind the mirror had also a serrated edge. Hopefully, no kids got hurt.

  • Hopefully no child has been affected by the mirror falling off.

  • What a shame as it looks quite comfy and like something bubs would really enjoy being in and fiddling with.

  • This actually looks like a cool product! Hope they can fix the fault and make it safe!

  • It’s good to be advised of these recalls and get the word out. I am still surprised so many items get to this stage.


    • Valid point about product testing, it should be a vigoruous process.
