Toys “R” Us have recalled the SmarTrike 700 Smartfold due to injury risk.

The ACCC have shared that the product does not come with the required brake, tether strap and warning labels.

What are the defects?
When the product is folded into the 6 months+ mode it does not comply with the mandatory standard ‘Trade Practices Act 1974 – Consumer Protection Notice No. 8 of 2007 – Consumer Product Safety Standard: Prams and Strollers’. The product does not come with the required brake, tether strap and warning labels.

What are the hazards?
If the product does not have the required safety features and warning labelling, it may not be used correctly, posing a risk of injury to the child.

What should consumers do?
Consumers are asked to return the SmarTrike Smartfold 700 to a Toys “R” Us or Babies “R” Us store for a full refund.

  • I don’t understand how these are released without being tested for Australian standards first

  • At what age to they expect a baby/toddler to be able to sit up continiously, be able to reach and push the pedals. UNless it is just the way the photos are taken I can’t see any brakes on it either.
