* WARNING : ICANDY ORANGE OWNERS *
Anyone who owns an iCandy Orange pushchair please please visit the icandy website and check if your batch is one which has a safety warning.
At the weekend, our little 21 month old princess got her finger trapped in the ‘safety cross bar’ on the pushchair! I’m not one to exaggerate, but believe me when I say the end of her finger was almost sliced off. We were on a bank holiday weekend away and were having a family day at Twin Lakes when this happened. It was such a traumatic experience and I still feel physically sick and can’t get it out of my head. The thought of what our little girl went through, I can’t even comprehend.
We’ve had our pushchair for 2 years, but icandy were only aware of this manufacturing fault in January (this year). Apparently John Lewis (where we brought ours) and mothercare were notified and we should have been made aware of the problem and issued with a new safety bar….we were NOT made aware and NEVER received a replacement bar. John lewis do not have this recall on their website. The fault is a missing safety cap!
Our girl has a fractured index finger bone and a severe wound. I decided not to post a photo of the finger itself, as it is extremely disturbing. However, these 2 photos are of my little girls blood ridden outfit and my t shirt…this gives you some idea of the severity of the injury.
If you know anyone with an early model of the icandy orange…please make them aware immediately. Thanks for reading…
