Here are the last three we've received.
|Sweet ride, but oh so dangerous|
#1 - The Bob dualie stroller. The issue at hand is how a drawstring used to pull back the canopy can be a strangulation hazard. This was the closest to being a real threat that I could see, but it still was a bit far fetched for me. The drawstring, when the canopy was fully open, could have enough slack in it to allow a child to grab it, wrap it around their neck, and choke.
Sounds horrible, right? This, of course, would require the parent forgetting to strap their child into the seat. Once strapped in the danger goes away. Their solution was simple - cut the cord and retract/extend the canopy manually. On the danger scale this is about a 2, so we left it in place.
#2 - Handle on the wagon can pinch fingers.
|Seems like the blocks are more of a choking hazard than anything|
#3 - Back to the Bob. See that little embroidered piece on the canopy? Yes, that too is a choking hazard. Apparently, if your child has the dexterity to undo the stiching, they can then grap the piece and chew on it. Their solution is to remove it using a standard pair of tweezers. This is a 1 on the danger scale.
Our solution was to just take the tweezers away from the girls. Sure, they'll miss them, but safety first! While we're at it we stopped letting them run with scissors, play with broken glass, and have removed all the loaded weapons from their cribs.
I'm sure they'll find other ways to defend themselves in the case of a home invasion.
