Yep, I had a set of these I had bought for my nephew (9yrs) and Dd wanted to look at it. She's not mouthy even a little bit and likes to play with her Nephew's toys (she wants KNEX of her own). The only thing I can figure is that she had stuck one of the little magnet balls onto the magnet stick and couldn't get if off with her hands so she tried to pull it off in her mouth and it got stuck
: I am ssooooo glad that I was literally right next to her when it happened. I actually remembered CPR stuff from 15+ years ago, flipped her upside down, did a quick chin maeuver and out it popped before even beginning the heimlich, but this was SCARY! I am very unsruprised that they are being recalled.
I still havent gotten through. I will ask about the rod ones.... they are the ones that I have noticed the magnets falling out of.
I dont want a " suitable" toy either! I wonder if I should just save the sets until the kids are way older? Plus I am in Canada. The postage alone will be ridiculous. Will they be paying that too??!!!
Has anyone gotten through yet? I will let you know what happens when I do.

I dunno... We have a couple sets that are the only rods and balls, but the tiny magnets have fallen out of a bunch of them. I tried to get rid of them before but my hubby thought we should glue the magnets back in.
I just went to Target where we bought them and they said they'd just refund our credit card (debit card) when they get the recall notice. They still had them on the shelves and no notice yet. Considering we paid $40 for his set I really dont want to trade for one of the cheap replacements. We'll take the money and let him pick out another toy of his own that HE likes. But we had bought the toy only a month ago so they can still look up our info.
