Yo-Yo Waterball Toy Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Zapatin Import recalls some Yo-Yo Waterball Toys due to choking hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/q5biU

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1052468

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the recalled toys are soft rubber balls filled with liquid and have a cord made of the same rubber material that extends and retracts like a yo-yo. The specific models subject to this recall are as follows:

  • Green Caterpillar-Shaped Spiky Yo-Yo Water Ball
  • Small Round Spiky Yo-Yo Water Ball
  • Green Man-Shaped Spiky Yo-Yo Water Ball

According to the ACCC, the recalled Toys are subject to a permanent ban relating to all Yo-Yo Water Balls and similar products. Each Toy has an elastic cord capable of extending to 500 mm in length. The cord can stretch to over one meter (over three feet) in length and may wind around a child’s neck – especially if swung around the head – and cause choking. The highly elastic and ‘sticky’ nature of the cord can constrict breathing if wound tightly around the neck.
