Consumer Reports says not to buy Heidi Klum's stroller

HeidiKlum

I guess her famous catchphrase is true: one day you're in, and the next, you're out.

A stroller hawked by Project Runway host and former supermodel Heidi Klum has been given a "don't buy" rating by Consumer Reports magazine.

In a series of consumer product safety tests, a buckle on the safety harness of the Truly Scrumptious Travel System by Heidi Klum repeatedly came unlatched, leaving kids at risk of falling out of the stroller. The most common cause of stroller-related injuries sustained by children are related to the child falling out of a stroller.

In fact, Consumer Reports is urging consumers who've already bought the stroller to say, "auf wiedersehen" and ask for a refund for the $220 piece of posh baby gear.

"If you already own the Heidi Klum TR252BQR stroller, you can continue using the car seat in the car and on the stroller, since it doesn’t rely on the stroller’s restraint system. But don’t use the stroller on its own. Consider asking the retailer for a refund on the entire travel system," Consumer Reports said, in a press release about the rankings.
