If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Skip Ball Toys, please do not use them nor let your child handle or play with them. Instead, kindly return the Skip Ball Toys to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm chemical poisoning or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any toy or other product, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure pets and small children can’t access the suspect toy.
