Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- The toy called “Water Balz” is being recalled, as well as its other varieties including, growing skulls, H2O Orbs and Fabulous Flowers.
The toys absorb water and can expand to 400 times their original size, which spells big trouble if a kid swallows one.
Water Balz and Growing Skulls were sold at the following stores:
- Bed Bath & Beyond
- Five Below
- Hobby Lobby
- Lakeshore Learning Materials
- Urban Outfitters Direct
- Wegmans and other stores nationwide
They were sold online at:
- americantoystores.com and other websites
The toy was sold from September 2010 through November 2012 for about $3 per package.
The voluntary recall comes after an eight-month-old girl ingested a Water Balz and suffered an intestinal obstruction, which required surgery to be removed.
