Recently, Mockingbird recalled about 149,000 of its popular Single-To-Double Strollers due to over 138 customers reporting cracked or broken frames.  Eight children have been reported injured according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission or CPSC.

Currently, the recall affects lot numbers 20091 to 22602.  According to Mockingbird, customers should stop using these lot-numbered strollers immediately until they receive a frame reinforcement kit. The frame reinforcement kit consists of two frame clamps that attach to the side, adding additional strength.  The recall doesn’t refund the stroller, but only offers the reinforcement kit. 

Comments and reports on social media include stories of horrified parents, whose small children and babies were dropped to the ground suddenly from the stroller breaking. In a report submitted to the CPSC in September, a parent described a stroller snapping in half with two one-year-old twins inside.  Both children fell to the ground, but fortunately, they only suffered minor injuries. 

A spokesperson for Mockingbird stated on the company website, “we received reports from some customers whose Single-to-Double Stroller developed cracks in the side of their stroller frame. Thanks to this valuable customer feedback, we developed a frame reinforcement kit that further strengthens the stroller frame and prevents this rare issue from being able to occur”.
