Check your toy box. There’s been a recall of Manhattan Toy’s Manhattan Ball plastic activity toys. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Manhattan Toy has received six reports of the plastic tubes detaching from the center ball. If a tube with a silicone teether detaches the silicone teether becomes a choking hazard.

The toy has a hard plastic center ball with 12 soft plastic tubes inserted into the center ball and 7 silicone teethers threaded on the tubes.  “The Manhattan Toy Company” and lot code 325700EL or 325700IL are printed on the center ball.

Manhattan Toy has received six reports of the plastic tubes detaching from the center ball.  Two of the six reports included a silicone teether being separated from the toy.  The firm also reported one incident of a child mouthing the silicone teether after it came off.

The Manhattan Ball was sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com from Jul. 2019 through Jun. 2020 for about $10.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact Manhattan Toy or return it to any Target Store for a full refund.
