CR investigation finds these toys can be deadly!

Water beads are marketed as a safe ‘sensory’ toy, but we found these products can be deadly, sending thousands of children to the ER each year with horrific injuries. The tiny gel balls that look like cupcake sprinkles or candy can grow to the size of a marble or golf ball in water – finding their way into the stomachs and intestines of infants and toddlers, where they can expand and cause injuries or death.

Join us in calling on the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban the sale of water beads to kids, and secure the recall of those already on the market.
