When buying or selling preowned items, you need to always check to make sure that the item did not have a recall before consigning it.
Sellers MUST check each of their items for recalls - it's not just Kidsignments rule... it is also the law.
NEW! WeMakeItSafer provided us this link to help check your items!
Here are two sites provided by the government for you check for recall information:
- U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
- For Car Seats (NHTSA - site can be slow or non-responsive during times of high impacting recall information)
Make sure to sign up for email alerts for new recalls while you on at the CPSC site. Always register your items with the manufacturer (this holds true for items other than childrens' items too) so you can be alerted of recalls.
You can also call the manufacturer of a product and give them a model number in question to see if the item has been recalled or needs replacement/adjustment parts.
If you ever need to replace a missing part of a toy or piece of baby equipment, try calling the company and ask if they have a replacement you can purchase. Little Tikes (call the number printed on the toy) even sells replacement stickers! This helps an older item look new and will definitely help it sell better... and usually for more money! Most manufacturers have links on their website for ordering replacement parts if needed.
