Panelcraft Inc. is recalling a toy that may pose a danger to children.

what's being recalled?

The company is recalling two styles of its Panelcraft Rainbow magnetic building sets. The building sets' corner welds can break, allowing the panels and frames to separate and release magnets during play. When released, exposed magnets can create a choking hazard.

The two styles included in the recall are the Dream Builder and Solid Builder. The Dream Builder includes 19 windows in red, yellow, green, blue and purple colors. The Solid Builder includes 19 pieces: 11 solid panels in red, yellow, green, blue and purple and eight white windows. Both measure nine inches by nine inches.

where could they be purchased?

The sets were sold at Discount School Supply, Kaplan Early Learning Company, Panelcraft and Tout About Toys from November 2016 through January 2017 for between $120 and $150 each.

About 2,000 sets are included in the recall. No incidents or injuries have been reported, to date.

what's next?

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled building sets and take them away from children. Contact the firm to receive a prepaid shipping label for returning the recalled sets for a free replacement set.
