Company recalls dangerous children's trampolines

Alex Toys has recently recalled a toddler trampoline which can present a fall hazard for young children. The Little Jumpers Trampolines were sold for around $100 across the country.

The toys are toddler-sized trampolines that have a handlebar which may become detached and cause a toddler to fall to the ground. Toddlers can sustain serious head injuries even when they fall from relatively low heights.

The fragility of young children and the potential seriousness of the injuries from this defective product means that parents should cease using the trampolines and contact the company for a replacement trampoline.

California law allows consumers to hold companies liable for the damages arising out of defective products even after a recall happens. There are three main theories of product liability litigation: defective design, defective manufacturing, and failure to warn of defects or dangers.

In this case it is unclear whether the potentially defective handlebar on the little jumpers is a product of a design or manufacturing defect. Manufacturing defects are often present in children's toys. An example of a manufacturing defect would be if the handlebar was weakened due to a step in the manufacturing process which made the toys unsafe for their intended use.
