RECALL: More than 7 Million Polly Pocket Dolls & Play Sets from Mattel

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with California-based Mattel, today announced a voluntary recall about 7.3 million Various Polly Pocket dolls and accessories with magnets. (about 2.4 million play sets were recalled on November 21, 2006) Small magnets inside the dolls and accessories can come loose. The magnets can be found by young children and swallowed or aspirated. If more than one magnet is swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforation or blockage, which can be fatal. Since the previous recall announcement, Mattel has received more than 400 additional reports of magnets coming loose. CPSC was aware in the first recall announcement of 170 reports of the magnets coming out of the recalled toys. There had been three reports of serious injuries to children who swallowed more than one magnet. All three suffered intestinal perforations that required surgery.
The recalled Polly Pocket play sets contain plastic dolls and accessories that have small magnets. The magnets measure 1/8 inch in diameter and are embedded in the hands and feet of some dolls, and in the plastic clothing, hairpieces and other accessories to help the pieces attach to the doll or to the doll’s house. The model number is printed on the bottom of the largest pieces on some of the play sets. Products manufactured after November 1, 2006 and are currently on store shelves are not included in this recall. Contact Mattel if you cannot find a model number on your product to determine if it is part of the recall. They were sold at toy stores and various other retailers from May 2003 through November 2006 for between $15 and $30 and manufactured in China.
