Children's toy recall announced after child swallows Water Balz

Water Balz, Growing Skulls, H2O Orbs among recall

WASHINGTON -  

Parents may need to double check what's sitting under the Christmas tree this year after a popular children's toy was recalled.

There's a recall on the toy called Water Balz and its other varieties, Growing Skulls, H2O Orbs and Fabulous Flowers.

The toys absorb water and can expand 400 times their original size. That's big trouble if a kid swallows one.

This voluntary recall happened after a baby needed surgery to remove it after ingesting last year.
