    Recall Date:

    Danger

    Tiny magnets inside the building pieces can fall out and can be swallowed or aspirated by young children, posing a choking hazard and risk of a dangerous intestinal blockage or perforation.

    Description

    The recall includes about 40,000 MagneBlocks construction sets. The sets contain six or more plastic building pieces and six or more 1/2-inch diameter steel balls. Some sets include steel rods. The building pieces are various colors and are shaped in 1-1/2-inch cubes and three-, four-, and five-sided pyramids. The plastic building pieces have "MagneBlocks" imprinted on them.

    Sold At

    Discount department and toy stores and Web sites, and other toy and arts and crafts stores nationwide from January 2004 through November 2006 for between $20 and $120, depending on the size of the set.

    What To Do

    CPSC recommends that children under 6 years of age not play with toys containing magnets. If a magnet comes out of one of the blocks in these sets, immediately remove the block from the set and send it to Geometix International for a free replacement block.
