More than 10,000 children’s scooters are now part of a recall because the toy could accelerate unintentionally causing the rider to fall.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports the recall involves electric, battery-operated City Scooters that are manufactured by Dynacraft. The scooters have Hello Kitty or Monster High decals on the front panel, footboard and rear fenders. They were manufactured between September 10, 2012 and December 3, 2012.
The electric, battery-operated City Scooters are purple and black with Monster High graphics on the front panel, footboard, and rear fenders. The scooters were manufactured between October 5, 2012 and November 7, 2012. Look for model number 8801-14 and the date of manufacture on a data label on the underside of the scooter. Serial numbers for the recalled scooters have the letters “QYCEI” followed by a six-digit number between 003125 and 014456 and are etched on the underside of scooter near the data label.
The scooters were sold at Walmart stores and Walmart.com between November 2012 and January 2013 for about $249. They were made in China.
