Bravo Sports will recall 159,000 pogo sticks due to fall and laceration hazards. Apparently, “the bottom rubber tip attached to the pogo stick frame can wear out prematurely, posing a fall hazard to consumers. Also, the end caps on the handlebars can come off, exposing sharp edges.” There have been nine reports of injuries associated with the products.
I’m amazed people are using their pogo sticks enough to wear out. I thought a pogo stick was something you bought, did twice, and stuck in the garage.
