The problem

Mamas & Papas has recalled its Armadillo Flip XT stroller. When in the parent-facing position, a latch may slip and cause the seatback to tip backwards. If the safety harness is not used or is used incorrectly, your child could fall out of the stroller and be injured.

The seatback cannot tip when your child is in the forward-facing position or where a bassinet attachment is used.


Affected Armadillo Flip XT strollers can be identified by the following:

  • Model: 225920700
  • Batch/lot numbers: 01214 to 00416

What to do

Do not use your stroller on rough terrain in the parent-facing position until it has been fixed. Always ensure your child is securely strapped in using the safety harness.

Owners of Armadillo Flip XT strollers will be contacted by letter or telephone to arrange a repair of the stroller. If you are not contacted directly, call or email the supplier Child’s Play Limited to arrange a time for the fix to be applied.
