We LOVE the Ergo brand - both Heidi and I use ours on an almost daily basis and to think that someone is flogging shoddy product with the Ergo name on it is really rank! The main thing is that these aren't safety tested - imagine carrying your little one and the buckle snaps - eeeek
Please, if you see any new 'Ergos' on Trademe selling for under $150, its most proably a fake - REPORT IT!
Belly Beyond is an authorised ERGObaby stockist. We are NZ's number 1 Ergo retailer!
Here is the warning from ERGObaby Head Office:
IMPORTANT ERGObaby WARNING
Over the past few months, increasing numbers of counterfeit ERGObaby Carriers are being offered for sale on eBay and Trade Me. Authenticity can usually be determined by comparing auction site pictures with those on our website. Additionally, if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is a fake. Counterfeit products are exempt from any manufacturer’s warranty policy, and we would caution anyone thinking about using counterfeit products about their safety, comfort and reliability.
Counterfeit ERGOs are:
· made with inferior material and parts – particularly the buckles!
· not product tested against safety standards
· not covered by any Product Insurance
· not covered by Product Warrantee
· not likely to comply with US lead-free criteria
We strongly suggest that all purchases of ERGObaby products be through authorized ERGObaby stores and webshops such as ourselves. To verify that we are an authorized retail stores, please visit: http://www.ergobabycarrier.com/retailers/
Thank you for your support in protecting the marketplace for everyone and trying to keep Australia and New Zealand ERGO rip-off free!
