Much as we love the new Beado toy, the company has found that they must make changes in the manufacture, and recall any Beado with date code "02910". If you bought the toy from us, you can exchange it at the store (a full refund requires receipt), or you can mail it back to the company for a refund.

From their letter:
"Rhine Toys Inc. Recalls Beado Toy Due to Choking Hazard (Part #1501, Date Code (02910)
Some of the wires of the toy have insufficient adhesive, allowing for the wires to come loose from the hubs and allowing the beads to slide off and pose a potential choking hazard to a child.
Product was sold from March 2010 to May 2010.
Consumers should immediately stop using this product and return it to the store where it was purchased to receive a full refund or replacement toy.
