Pogo Sticks (1310)
New Star Wholesale    
I purchased two Pogo sticks for my grandchildren from the local K-mart that is going out of business. My daughter also purchases one. My grand-daughter (6 yrs) was on the pogo stick and it fell apart while she was jumping on it. I took the screws and placed them in a bag and returned it for a replacement. Lo and behold the girls are so excited to be able to play together with the pogo sticks and the replacement pogo stick fell apart. I contacted the company and explained that I feel this is a serious safety risk. He said it has never happened before. I explained we have 3 of them and that 2 out of 2 the same thing happened. I did not give the 3rd pogo stick to my other grandchild. I returned to K-mart today with my receipts in hand and the pogo sticks but they will not issue a refund because they are going out of business. There are a lot of these pogo sticks for sale as I explained to the store mgr, children could be hurt. The item #KMPS-3000 LUTB, Manufactured by New Star Wholesale, Inc, 2211 E. 27th street, Vernon, CA
