Be Amazing! Toys
Sold At: 

Authorized Specialized dealers nationwide from July 2011 through January 2013 for between $990 to $11,000.

Problem:

The soft and colorful product can be easily mistaken by a child for candy. When the marble-sized toy is ingested, it can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. The toys do not show up on an x-ray and require surgery to be removed from the body.

About 14,200 in the United States and 1,200 in Canada
If You Own This Product: 

Consumers should immediately take this recalled toy away from children and contact Be Amazing! Toys for a refund.
