Small magnets used to connect the puzzle pieces can fall out and be swallowed or aspirated by young children. If more than one magnet is swallowed, they can attract each other and cause dangerous intestinal perforation or blockage.
The recalled Link-N-Lite Magnetic Light-Up Puzzle, which is a double-sided plastic magnetic puzzle for ages 3 and up, has two designs:
The Disney-brand puzzle shows the Disney Princesses on the front and Ariel from The Little Mermaid on the back.
The Marvel-brand puzzle shows "Spider-Man & Friends" on both sides.
Each puzzle measures 8 inches by 10.5 inches, contains nine pieces with four or six magnets per piece, and lights up when all pieces are in place. A 9-volt battery is placed in the center bottom piece that contains a battery case.
Target and Kohl's stores nationwide and on Amazon.com from June 2006 through January 2007 for about $15.
