This collection of magnetic balls has been feted as THE desk game for adults. But parents apparently aren't watching their curious little tykes closely enough because
a few of them have snuck into Dad's office and eaten them. This of course makes it much more difficult to go through airport medical detectors, but Buckyballs also stick to kids' guts and you have to dig them out.
With a scalpel.
Buckyballs is having a fit, naturally. You find this proclamation on their website:
According to an American Academy of Pediatrics report, there were 60 magnet ingestion cases over the last two years which resulted in 26 surgeries. At least 22 of these cases were connected with Buckyballs.
