Kids II is recalling about 680,000 Oball Rattles because a clear plastic disc on the outside of the balls can break and release small beads that pose a choking hazard to young children.

The company has received 42 reports of the plastic disc breaking. There have been two reports of beads found in children’s mouths and three reports of gagging.

The recall involves Oball Rattles in pink, blue, green and orange with model number 81031 printed on the inner surface of one of the plastic discs and on the packaging.

Only rattles with date codes T0486, T1456, T2316, T2856 and T3065 located on a small triangle on the inner surface of the rattle are included in the recall.
The rattles were sold at Target, Walgreens, Walmart and other retailers nationwide and online at,,,, and other online retailers from January 2016 through February 2017 for between $5 and $7.  

Consumers should immediately take these recalled rattles away from young children and contact Kids II to receive a full refund. 

Consumers with questions may contact Kids II toll-free at 877-243-7314 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  ET Monday through Friday or visit
