Paging Darth Vader! Some 60,000 of these Skywalker Trampolines have been recalled by the manufacturer and Consumer Product Safety Commission because the straps connecting the top of the enclosure to the poles don’t work. The enclosure can drop, which puts bouncy kids at risk of falling off the trampoline. The company has received 250 reports of strap failure but, fortunately, no injuries. If you’ve got one of these in your backyard, contact Skywalker Holdings for a free repair kit.
