The company previously recalled its single-to-double strollers after at least 138 reports of cracked frames, creating a fall hazard for children.

Popular baby stroller company Mockingbird is recalling about 25,400 of its single strollers—extending the initial recall of its single-to-double strollers from November 2022. That recall included 149,000 of those strollers.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the single stroller recall comes after at least 13 reports of cracked frames, which could potentially put infants and small children riding the stroller at risk of falling. No children were hurt in the incidents. There were 138 reports of cracked frames with the single-to-double strollers. In those cases though, there were eight children hurt.

As with the initial recall, the company will not be offering refunds. Instead, Mockingbird is advising customers to stop using the strollers until they get a company-provided frame reinforcement kit. The kit will come with two frame clamps that caregivers can attach to the side of the stroller.

Is My Mockingbird Stroller Affected?

You may be wondering if you have one of the recalled strollers. Mockingbird's strollers are made of aluminum and come in black or silver. The seats are black, but the canopies are either black, light blue, dark blue, pink, or light green. The single strollers were sold online from March 2020 through March 2023. The single-to-double strollers were sold at Target stores nationwide, as well as online, from March 2020 to September 2022.

In both recalls, parents and caregivers should look for the five-digit lot number to determine if you have an affected stroller. That lot number can be found on the white product label on the inner left side of the stroller. Mockingbird set up a page with a diagram to help people determine if their stroller is recalled.

Here are the lot numbers affected:

Single Stroller Lot Numbers
Between 18322-22278
Single-to-Double Stroller Lot Numbers
 Between 20091-22602

Mockingbird is contacting all known buyers immediately. But the company is also asking people who received the email but gifted the stroller to forward it to the recipient.

Background on the Mockingbird Recall

Consumer Reports publicly called for an immediate recall of the single-to-double strollers on October 28. They included a personal anecdote from a Brooklyn mother of two who said her Mockingbird stroller broke in half while crossing a busy intersection. Consumer Reports also noted that they had included the stroller in tests but only as a single-seat product. The optional second seat was not part of any tests.

"The stroller is not one of our top-rated products, though we didn't observe any breakages in our tests," Consumer Reports wrote.

The same day, Mockingbird emailed customers and issued a statement on social media calling the incidents "isolated" and announcing plans to work with CPSC to determine the next steps. In the statement, Mockingbird noted that safety was the top priority of the company, a sentiment the brand repeated in Thursday's voluntary recall email.

"Our top priority is (and always has been) to ensure the safety of you and your little ones, and in this case, we determined that a voluntary recall was the best way to uphold that commitment," the company wrote in an email.
