According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, Fun Stuff Inc., of Newport News, VA, has voluntarily recalled three of their products. This recall was released September 14, 2010.
What is being recalled?
Approximately 36,700 toys are included in this recall.
What’s the problem?
The toys have arms with attached balls, which can detach from the toy. If this happens, children could choke on the balls. Even though the toys were sold for children 3 and up, the US CPSC states that they were designated for children 19 through 35 months.
Which specific toys are involved in this recall?
This recall is for Click Armband Bracelets (about 14,400), Klick Klick Balls (about 7,900), and BoBo Balls (about 14,400). These toys are made of stretchy rubber and they have hard plastic balls on the ends of the arms. The balls are orange, green, pink, purple, and blue. The BoBo Balls also have a ball in the center of the rubber that flashes.
The item number for the Click Armband Bracelet is FS1842. The item number for the Klick Klick Ball is FS1734. The item number for the BoBo Ball is FS1814. These numbers can be found on the packages the toys came in.
The toys were manufactured in China and sold nationwide in the US at beach resort stores from January 2009 through August 2010. They cost between $2 and $5. As of the date of this release, one child, a 21-month-old little girl, had one of the balls come off in her mouth. She was not injured.
