Ickle Bubba Discovery: My stroller is bent slightly, and wobbly in the handle bars area. Is that safe?

Trina • 09 May 2023

I have just bought one of the discovery strollers second hand and it seems to bend slightly in the middle and handles area bit wobbly. Is this just wear and tear or do you think it's unsafe?

Hey, Trina,

The wobbling of the handles is rather normal, especially with use. That I would not be worried about.

The bending though could be unsafe. I cannot judge without seeing that really, and if it's a very slight change it should most probably be ok, but if it causes a change in the handling, or if it's quite prominent - really bent and visible, I would be careful.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
