BebeLove Baby Walker Recalled from Retail Stores

Written by James P. Nevin 

The BebeLove Baby Walker failed to meet federal safety standards and has been recalled. Specifically, style number 358 can fit through a standard doorway and is not designed to stop at the edge of a step as required by the federal safety standard. In addition, style number 368 contains leg openings that allow the child to slip down until the child’s head can become entrapped at the neck. There is the possibility that babies using these walkers could be seriously injured or killed.

The walkers were sold at small retail stores in Arizona, California and Utah and online at and from November 2011 through July 2013 for about $25. They were designed for babies 6 months and older and contain a plastic-­covered foam padded seat with a plastic base and toy tray. If you have one of these in your home you are advised to stop using it immediately and contact BebeLove for a free repair kit.
