    The Company's Response-



    I think this is an interesting debate. The toys are marketed to teens and adults, but children in the homes are being injured significantly by them. I find it even more interesting that the CPSC will not back down.

    Well, I don't know. The woman mentioned in the article must have left the magnets somewhere accessible to her 2-year-old. The company has messages all over the box telling consumers to keep out of reach of children. Obviously if a toy is made out of multiple small balls, magnetized or not, a child could swallow that. I lean more toward it being the responsibility of the parent/adult in the home to not bring such products into a home with small children since the product is otherwise safe unless it is swallowed. Lots of products could be harmful if used incorrectly.
