Polly Pocket Play Sets Recalled

Date:
August 14, 2007
Category:
Toys & Games
Company/Brand:
Mattel
The Danger:
Small magnets inside the dolls and accessories can come loose; if swallowed by young children, the magnets can attract each other internally and cause dangerous intestinal perforations or blockages.
Description:
This recall involves about 7.3 million Polly Pocket play sets that contain plastic dolls and accessories that have small magnets. The magnets measure 1/8 inch in diameter and are embedded in the hands and feet of some dolls, and in the plastic clothing, hairpieces, and other accessories to help the pieces attach to the doll or to the doll's house.
The model number is printed on the bottom of the largest pieces on some of the play sets. Products manufactured after November 1, 2006, and are currently on store shelves are not included in this recall. Contact Mattel if you cannot find a model number on your product to determine if it is part of the recall. See chart for more information:
