- Small magnets inside the building pieces can fall out; if swallowed by young children, the magnets can attract each other internally and cause dangerous intestinal perforations or blockages.

- The 68-piece set comes in a window box and contains forty-four 1-inch rods with magnets and 24 metal balls. The rods come in different colors.
- All of the plastic building pieces have the word "Magnabild" in raised lettering on them. "BB1439H" is found on a hang tag attached to the display case. "BAT-34" is found on the box. The products are designed for children older than 3 years.
- 125,000 other Battat Magnabild Building Systems were recalled on January 23, 2008.
