Canadian kids don’t count to corporate America

Sheesh, as it if it weren’t bad enough that gullible Canadian parents have been excluded from the Baby Einstein refund offer, now comes news that Canadian parents aren’t included in the recently-announced recall of Maclaren strollers, even though the strollers are the same in both Canada and the US and all strollers are apparently a potential “finger tip amputation” (!!) risk. Guess I’d better be especially careful when folding up my handy-dandy little Triumph that I keep tucked in the back of the car!

Corporate America just doesn’t care about Canadian kids, I guess…

I was disappointed too that I couldn’t return the stupid Baby Einstein DVDs for a refund. At least I don’t have a dismembering stroller though.
