#Bravo Sports has #recalled 159,000 #Pogo #Sticks. These items were ‘branded’ with #Disney themes. The photo above appeared in a story by Consumer Reports that is available at “Bravo Sports Recalls 159,000 Disney Branded Pogo Sticks”.
Our investigation indicates that these popular Pogo Sticks were sold at:
- Burlington Coat Factory
- Toys R Us
Popular themes include the following:
- Hannah Montana
- Disney/Pixar Toy Story
- Disney/Pixar Cars
- Disney Princesses
- Disney Fairies
The Pogo Sticks were sold from February 2009-June 2011. Bravo and the #CPSC have received reports of at least 82 instances where the bottom tip of the pogo stick has worn out. Of these, at least 5 include reports of serious injuries to children, which included at least 1 child that suffered a skull fracture and chipped tooth. Notably, end caps in the “T” handlebar area have also reportedly come off and exposed sharp edges that can cut riders or handlers.
Bravo is providing a full refund and should be contacted at BRAVO SPORTS (855) 469-3429. If you own or are in possession of one of these pogo sticks you should stop using it immediately and not permit children to use it any longer.
