    Frikkin pathetic… sigh… Those things were fun! Both my daughters played with them growing up, along with my grandson, and nobody swallowed a single one!!!

    Did you see this?

    Yeah, I am against the nanny state deciding what products are too dangerous as much as anyone, but odd the coincidence in timing.

  3. SayUncle Says:

    Parenting fail. BuckyBalls is pretty clear that they’re not for kids.

  4. Cargosquid Says:

    Of course, NOW I want one.

  5. Kristophr Says:

    They need to open up again outside the US.

  6. rickn8or Says:

    Cargosquid, they’ll probably start smuggling them in from Mexico or Canada.

    They aren’t sold out yet.

    When magnets are outlawed, only outlaws will have magnets. They can have my Buckyballs when they pry them from my cold, dead hands.

  9. mikee Says:

    Buckeyballs are just the popular form of a large universe of magnets that can cause the same damgage when ingested. From a product liability perspective, there was nothing else to do but stop marketing them, as the damage they have done in several cases is real, and significant.

    That is the state of the law today. It may change. In the meantime there are other powerful magnets out there that are not as popular as Buckeyballs that one can buy.
