I smell a recall...

or a lawsuit.

Who in the world thought a scooter that shoots fire out the end was a good idea? I mean seriously, what do the user instructions say?
  1. Do not ride while wearing long pants.
  2. Do not ride near gas sources.
  3. If you are especially hairy, wax your leg hair before attempting to ride.
  4. Before riding, please review the attached instructions for stop, drop and roll.


And how much do you have to pay for the pleasure of this pyrotechnic pasttime? A mere $70! Heck, put your kid on a regular scooter and I'll run after them with a lit match for only $50.

i had to come back and tell you my 9 y/o saw the commercial on tv and came running into the kitchen to tell me they made a scooter with a flint on the back and you press on it and sparks come shooting out. He says, can you imagine what would happen if you went through dry leaves?!
LOL, told you he's a safety freak.
