November 25th, 2009We have had several inquiries lately about the Maclaren stroller recall, so I thought I would weigh in on the topic and help shed some light.
The issue is with all 9 Maclaren stroller models, new and old.
The recall was voluntary and it was issued because 12 kids had their finger tips amputated when their little fingers got stuck in the side hinges during the stroller unfolding process. When it comes to child safety, we must all take caution. However, please keep in mind that this issue was caused during the folding and unfolding process, not while strolling. So, parents, take the appropriate measures to fix the issue, but please don’t panic. Your stroller is fine, you just need to contact your retailer or Maclaren directly to have them send you a package of hinge covers.
Maclaren is providing all retailers and stroller owners with a package of 2 Hinge Covers. When installing them, it sufficiently covers/blocks the hinge area, preventing kids from getting their fingers caught.
Once you have these and install them, you are ready to roll again!
Maclaren is a great brand, and they make great products. I stand by them as a parent and retail store owner.Tweet This Post maclaren stroller recall information maclaren stroller recall review

Our blog was not meant to serve as a glaring advertisment for our store, www.PamperedTot.com
Being environmentally conscious, both as people and as a business, Audrey and I implemented a plan aimed at preserving the environment in the only way we knew how…planting trees. We started off by investing is renewable energy projects to offset the pollution we caused by running our business operations and to offest the fuel used to deliver our packages to our thousands of customers around the world. Fearing that this was not enough, we decided to go one step further and plant a tree for every stroller sold in our store
With the help of our partners at www.CarbonFund.orgwww.PamperedTot.com click here
The program has been a huge success so far, but it can always be much better. We are trying to spread the word and save this planet one stroller at a time!Tweet This Post eco-friendly stroller program pampered tot stroller plant a tree

Audrey (my wife) and I started our online baby products retail store (www.PamperedTot.com
Since opening Pampered Tot, our business has grown tremendously (40% per year for the past 4 years). We continue to offer the best baby products that we can find, and provide the best, and most knowledgable, customer service experience to our loyal customers.
As proud parents of 2 great kids, we have first-hand knowledge of almost every product we carry, and have been able to share our insight and experience with our shoppers. As a result, we have made shopping with us quick, easy, and fun!
Over the course of the past 4 years, we have been counseling expectant parents about everything from strollers to sleep training, and everything in between. Led and managed by Audrey, customers are not just finding the best products, but are getting counselled on proper feeding, sleep scheduling and potty training as well.
We hope you enjoy our blog and welcome your comments!
