Buckyball Magnet Toys Banned

Just like Jarts....

Buckyball Magnet Toys Official Banned By Goverment | Geekologie

Quote:
The CSPC said that Buckyballs are a "substantial product hazard" and are concerned by the injuries it causes to kids who swallow them:

"Notwithstanding the labeling, warnings and efforts taken by (Maxfield and Oberton), ingestion incidents continued to rise because warnings are ineffective"

When swallowed, the CSPC says that Buckyballs have the potential to pinch and trap intestines and require surgery to remove.

I don't think it has happened yet ?

Feds file suit against Buckyballs, retailers ban product – USATODAY.com

if they ban buckyballs they need to ban anything a dumbass kid can swallow IMHO

Ahhhh

From the USA Today article

Quote:
Betty Lopez, Sabrina's mother, says her daughter never saw the warning on the Buckyballs packaging and says it "wasn't sufficient enough for the parent who did buy them."

"Any child's life is worth more than $50 million," adds Lopez.
Maybe if the parent had been responsible?

Responsible, c'mon, that would require the use of common sense! Sarcasm of course.

In all honesty cause of incidents like this, if they do choke and cause lack of oxygen to the brain, and do survive, but then become a basically braindead, they will end up costing us taxpayers $50million a head.

I didn't see the warning not to give small ball magnets to my child so I gave small ball magnets to my baby Daughter and to my dismay she choked

Yeah, I understood what you meant. It's all good.

I ordered a few sets to put up just in case the ban does come to fruition.

We have 7 sets of Jarts, 3 sets unopen and 4 sets we use. The kids have played Jarts since they were old enough to throw 'em.
