Reasons the product is recalled

The product is subject to a permanent ban on Yo-Yo Water Balls and similar products. The product has an elastic cord capable of extending to 500mm in length.

The hazards to consumers

The cord can stretch to over one metre in length and may wind around a child’s neck, especially if swung around the head, and cause choking. The highly elastic and ‘sticky’ nature of the cord can constrict breathing if wound tightly.

What consumers should do

Cease using the product immediately. Return the product to Design by Stitches for a full refund. The cord can be cut-off the waterball in order to make the product safe.
