Toys are 6 / sets, yellow, red, blue and black four colors, “ Dunecraft” toys name and product model marked on the outer packing. Water Balz and Growing Skulls from September 2010 to November 2012 sales in the U. S., the price is about $3 / sets; H2O Orbs“ Despicable Me” in June 2012 in the United States Universal Studios store sales, unit price is about $3 / sets; Fabulous Flowers from 2012 6 to November in Racine Wisconsin Milaeger' S stores selling; and the price is about $3 / set.
the number of recalled goods was about 95300 units (about 94700 units in the United States and about 600 in Canada). The reason for the recall is that if a child mistakenly swallows a toy of the size of a marble, the toy will expand in water and cause intestinal obstruction, leading to severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration, and even life-threatening. If swallowed, the expansion ball does not require X - ray photography and requires immediate surgical removal. Up to now, Dunecraft Inc. has received 1 cases of 8 month old baby girl swallowed 1 inflated water polo and lead to intestinal obstruction, after surgery out of the accident report. The Canadian Department of health has not received any accident reports.
:  : for this purpose, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Canadian Department of health, advises consumers to immediately recall inflated balloons that are recalled from children and to contact Dunecraft Inc. for free replacement of other toys.
