Jakks Pacific Inc. has recalled MorfBoard Skate & Scoot Combo toys because the “Y” handlebar joint on the scooter can break, posing a fall hazard.

The company has received 18 reports of the “Y” handlebars breaking, including 1 injury when a child fell and suffered a bloody nose.

The recalled Morfboard toys were sold at Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, Meijer, BJ’s Wholesale Club stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.com and morfboard.com from February 2018 to August 2020 for about $100.
