Kmart urgently recalls ANKO Gravity bouncer over safety fears


A popular Kmart baby bouncer has been urgently recalled over fears it could seriously harm or injure a young child.

Product Safety Australia issued the alert on the ANKO Gravity Bouncer from the discount store on Wednesday night, stating a defect on the locking clip between the base of the seat and the stand could cause the baby seat to collapse.

“If the locking clip between the base of the seat and the stand is not correctly released prior to folding, damage could occur to the product, resulting in possible collapse upon subsequent uses,” the notice reads.

“If the product collapses, there is a risk of an injury to a young child.”

Consumers should immediately cease using this product and return the product to any Kmart store for a full refund.

An alert was first issued at the start of December but due to the serious nature of the defect and potential harm Product Safety Australia has issued the notice again.

Affected bouncers will bear the keycode 42821458 and were sold between January 16 and July 23 this year.

Albury Girl Guides celebrate decade of giving to Kmart Wishing Tree | The Border Mail


news, local-news,

For the past 10 years the Albury Girl Guides have been putting gifts under the Kmart Wishing Tree. And despite COVID upsetting most of their 2020 service activities, the Christmas tradition lived on this year with each girl guide given $10 to pick a present for someone less fortunate. For 10-year-old Ruby Hilton, being a girl guide is about helping others. “It is good to give a present to someone who might be doing it tough at Christmas,” she said. “Just a small present can make someone smile and if I can help someone smile that is really good.” Guide leader Lorraine Graham said, like all other community groups, 2020 has been a tough year with not many activities going ahead. IN OTHER NEWS: “We haven’t been able to do much this year in terms of service so this is a great way for the girls to give back,” she said. “This is our tenth year giving to the Kmart Wishing Tree and is a great tradition that the girls look forward to each year. “They are given a price limit and are told to buy for all different ages from babies up to grandmas and for both boys and girls so there isn’t 20 gifts for 10-year-old girls under the tree. “It is all about giving back and helping those less fortunate than yourself.”
