Urgent recall: Popular baby trikes too dangerous to keep

Kogan trike recall

Kogan Australia Pty Ltd — 4 in 1 Baby Walker & Trike and 6 in 1 Baby Walker & Trike

Parents are being told to dispose of two convertible walker and trike models that have been recalled due to missing safety features.

Product description: 4 in 1 Baby Walker & Trike and the 6 in 1 Baby Walker & Trike (available in black or grey models).

Defects: The products have some of the features of a stroller, but are unsafe for use as a stroller to transport children as they do not have the safety features required under the mandatory standard ‘Consumer Product Safety Standard for Prams and Strollers (Consumer Protection Notice No 8 of 2007, as amended on 14 February 2019)’. These products are missing safety features and labelling and the locking device can be operated easily by a child.

To obtain a refund consumers will be requested to provide Kogan Australia with a photograph or video to show that the product has been completely destroyed.
