Water-Absorbing Polymer Balls
Description: This recall involves marble-sized toys that absorb water and grow up to 400 times their original size. They were sold as Monster Science Colossal Water Balls (model #7255) and Super Star Science! Colossal Water Balls (model #7704). Monster Science packages contain eight balls and “Growth Powder.” Super Star Science! packages contain five balls. The balls were sold in an assortment of blue, green, orange, purple, red, yellow or clear colors. The “Be Amazing! Toys” star logo, “Ages 8+”, the name of the toy, “Colossal Water Balls” and a warning not to use without adult supervision are on the front of each product’s packaging. Model numbers are printed on the back of the packaging.
Hazard: The soft and colorful product can be easily mistaken by a child for candy. When the marble-sized toy is ingested, it can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. The toys do not show up on an x-ray and require surgery to be removed from the body.
Remedy: Consumers should immediately take this recalled toy away from children and contact Be Amazing! Toys for a refund.
