Maclaren save all the UK kids - with some kind of free cloth
Following a couple of days of rumbling and grumbling from consumers and the media, Maclaren have stopped thinking about racing cars and turned their attention towards child safety. That’s in the wake of the product recall of the company’s ‘umbrella’ style buggies in the US, which it was claimed could be responsible for the chopping off of ickle children’s finger ends.
Concerned parents in the UK can avoid such digit-severence now by contacting Maclaren and requesting a special cloth that the company have cobbled together. We haven’t seen any photos of this miraculous mini-shroud but it is said to safely cover the hinge that has been trying to eat all of the children.
Dylan Johnson, general manager of Maclaren UK, said: “We stress that our buggies are completely safe and fully compliant, but if parents remain concerned or worried, we urge them to talk to us.”
You can talk to them on 01377 841 320 or email them at [email protected]. But try not to steer the conversation too far away from buggy safety and the miracle cloth – it’s not some kind of chat line for the lonely and bewildered.
