I don't know, call me crazy, but whenever I fork over a nice little bit of money for a stroller, I'd just as soon as not have one of my kids get their fingers amputated by some faulty non-covered hinge. That's just me being overprotective, I suppose.
But apparently, that's exactly what's going on with a whole heap of Maclaren strollers (12 reported cases, actually). There will be an official Maclaren stroller recall notice released tomorrow informing folks who bought one between 1999 and 2009 of the finger-chop-off-iness. The models currently named include "Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, Techno XLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller."
There will be an installable hinge cover made available free of charge for those with the aforementioned models. In the meantime, just lug those heavy babies around in your arms, because that's why you buy a stroller, right? To have to carry babies anyway.
